For Time: 50/35 Calorie Assault Bike 125 Double-Unders 2,000 Meter Row 125 Double-Unders 50/35 Calorie Assault Bike STRATEGY BIKE & ROW The goal on both machines is to find an uncomfortable pace to hold throughout While we do want to get uncomfortable, this should be a threshold pace that you can sustain throughout Hone in on a pace and try to hold that number on the monitor

DOUBLE UNDERS This is a good day to chip away at large sets While we can aim to go big, this doesn't mean these sets have to be unbroken The goal is to maintain a similar rep scheme from the first 125 to the second 125 Below are a few options on how to approach these: 1 Set: 125 2 Sets: 75-50 3 Sets: 50-50-25 4 Sets: 40-30-30-25
