Barbell Loading - 53% of 1RM

Post completion time to the tracker.

If we are not running today, completing an equal row (1,600 meters), is our recommended modification.

After a single mile run, the athlete moves into 10 rounds of the 7/7/7 complex (Thruster, Pull-Up, Burpee). Standards on the pull-ups are chin over, with burpees being of the classical sense. Jump and touch hands overhead with open hips and knees (not bar over today).

Time wise, we are looking at spending similar ranges on both parts – run and indoor work. Pacing wise, we want to place our effort however more on the rounds of BBT, than the run. Reason being, transitions.

On the run, let’s push our pace to roughly the 2-3 mile pace we would hold if running a time trial. Fast and aggressive, but one that we can run directly indoors to start the first thruster. And on this run, on the final 200 meters, slow our pacing just a bit further to gather ourselves for the work inside.

Inside the gym, transitions count. In full, we are looking at 30 transitions from the start of entering the gym. It is incredibly easy to allow a second or two to tick by without us even realizing it. With diligence in our transitions, it is entirely possible to move upwards towards a minute faster in today’s workout.

As we push our transitions, we also need to take into account how we "recover". On the thrusters and pull-ups, although methodical efficient movement will be our aim, it will be challenging to level out our breathing and heart rate during these movements. What is far easier to control our breathing on, is the burpees. Completing these burpees as "breathing burpees" affords us a chance to slow the pace just enough for us to continue the pace on the next round. "Breathing burpees" are simply a very controlled pace, where after the jump and clap, we allow our arms to slowly come down to our sides, as we
