Training Tip for Today’s WOD

By There are no tags 0 comments

Hey Y’all!

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.

Tips:

  1. Rest as you move from the deadlift to double unders.  Don’t rush!
  2. Breathe through your nose while inhaling DEEP breaths.  This will help you regulate your stress response and your HR.
  3. 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.
