For todays EMOM 20, it is critical to hit the unbroken double unders the first time and NOT have to start over. I tested this WOD with my Polar HR monitor and there was a 10 beats difference in my heart rate on the 4 rounds where I missed against the rounds I hit correctly the first time.
- Rest as you move from the deadlift to double unders. Don’t rush!
- Breathe through your nose while inhaling DEEP breaths. This will help you regulate your stress response and your HR.
- Keep the double unders at a slightly slower pace to ensure you don’t have a miss. This isn’t “Annie” where faster wins. Its about consistency.
