Keep Pace

Yesterday had heavy deadlifts, but after back squats Sunday and squat snatches on Monday my back needed to recover. Plus it would have been 4 days in a row, so I welcomed the rest day. Went at 4pm today.

Warm-up

2 Rounds

  • 20 cal Row
  • 20 Jump Rope
  • 20 DU

Conditioning

E4M for 40:00

  • 20 cal Row
  • 15 Burpees
  • 40 DU

Two months ago we did 15 cal, 15 burpees, and 30 double unders every 3 minutes for 30:00. I killed it with all of my rounds between 1:59 and 2:02, not missing a double under. With more rest and not much more work, my goal was to push the rower a little more with > 1,400 cal/hour the whole way. If my double under were on point, I was hoping for rounds of 2:20.

I’d say my average pace on the rower was between 1,400 and 1,450 through every round. My burpees were at a nice steady pace that didn’t change much. In the 8th round I tripped on the rope before my first rep and missed at 24 reps. Every other round was unbroken.

My times were 2:10-2:13-2:15-2:11-2:13-2:13-2:12-2:17-2:13-2:11 between movements well in the 3rd round and then that 8th round was obviously going to be my slowest with the misses. Other than that everything was within a few second window again. These workouts really force you to keep pushing your pace and the 10 round grind can get to your head.
