How to Pace: STEADY. This Open workout is all about pacing correctly from the beginning. You want to pace round 1 so you can keep your last round at the same speed or even faster. Build intensity as you go. 20 minutes is a long time!

How it should Feel: The cardio can be the most of the workout if you pace correctly.


Dumbbell Thrusters: These will be challenging to hold onto unbroken throughout but we want you to if possible. Rest a little extra before and after sets as needed. Breathe through and use the hips to rocket the weights off your shoulders.

Toes to bar: These will add up with grip fatigue but we want you to focus on tight core and fluid kipping which can save you in later rounds

Double Unders: We’d love for these to be as much active recovery as possible. The more you can keep your heart rate under control with unbroken sets the better.
