We'll climb by another 2% across all lifts over last week

The percentages will climb by 3% on each set of 1 (84-90%)
We'll finish out the session with a 12-rep drop set at 64%
Sets begin every 90 seconds (0:00 - 1:30 - 3:00 - 4:30 - 6:00 - 7:30 - 9:00)

Fortitude (AMRAP - Reps)

Alternating On the Minute x 30 (15 Rounds):
Even Minutes: 15/12 Calorie Row
Odd Minutes: 15 Burpees

Rx+ 20/15 Cal Row, 10 Burpee Box Jump Overs

"Fortitude" is a CompTrain Benchmark workout that combines two simple movements over a longer time domain
We'll alternate on the minute between these two stations for 30 minutes, or 15 rounds total
While the workout has a prescribed rep scheme, let's adjust these numbers to something you are confident you could complete in around 50 seconds per movement each round
Your score today will be the lowest rounds of row calories + your lowest round of burpees

For Example:
If you complete the 15 calorie row and 15 burpees on every round, your score for the day is 30
If you are able to maintain 15 calories on the rower, but drop to 12 burpees in one round, your score for the day is 27

ROW
Reset your monitor on the rower every round

BURPEE BOX JUMP OVERS
Let's make sure to reach full extension at the top of each burpee
You can jump up or step up out of the burpee

 

**EXTRA**

 

Metcon (AMRAP - Rounds)

3 Supersets:
10 Supinated Grip Ring Rows
20 Single Leg Glute Bridges (10 Each Side)

Rest 1:30 Between Sets

3 Supersets:
10 Barbell Bent Over Rows
:30 Second Prisoner Superman Hold

Rest 1:30 Between Sets

We'll alternate back and forth between two movements in these 3 rounds supersets
The focus here is on quality of movement over speed
Move directly from the first movement to the second, then rest 90 seconds between sets
Complete all three sets of the ring rows and bridges before moving on to the three rounds of bent over rows and prisoner superman holds
