You know those workouts that you think won’t be that bad. If you have done CrossFit, you will know what I am talking about. Well this was one of those workouts that I thought would be fine. And it destroyed me. I like kettlebell swings and burpees. I hate thrusters, but since it was a light weight, I didn’t think much of it. I was completely wrong.
Each movement does not involve a lot of reps, so you should be able to do them unbroken. At least that is the goal. If you are not that good at kettlebell swings, then you will probably need to break those up because the weight is heavy. That being said, I definitely had to break them up once I hit rounds 3 and 4. The thrusters are light enough that you should be able to move through them. Same with the burpees. Just keep moving.
There is no hiding in this workout. No movements are easier than the others and you don’t get a break with a certain movement. And the combination of these movements flat out suck. If you need to take a break, make it short. Three deep breaths and then right back at it. It is a lot easier said then done though.
I finished 4 rounds plus 15 thrusters using the RX weight. I wanted 5 rounds, but I spent too much time resting between movements. AKA I couldn’t breathe and was dying! Guess I will have to give it a go again in a few months.
Try it out and let me know how it goes!
