Non-Benchmark Wednesday

Just to throw a wobbly in, our Wednesday WOD was not a benchmark or hero workout but instead it was:

For Time:
3 Rounds of:
50 Double Unders
25 Front Squats 42kg (30kg)
20 Toes to bar
15 Push Press 42.5kg (30kg)
10 Burpees
Run 200m
I was unsure how to scale this one because it was pretty high volume so I went with:
  • 25 double unders - I didn't want to waste time struggling to get 50 double unders.
  • 15 kg front squat and push press.
  • Knee to chest.  While I can do toes to bar, it is a different story trying to do 3 rounds of 20.
My double unders are either on or off and today was a good day.  I managed to string together quite a few and my first round I did 22 in a row.  Yay for progress!!
The whole workout took me 22:54 to complete it which was well under the 30 minute cut off.  With that in mind, I think I scaled perfectly.
