WOD Brief

HERO WOD today and we have to sprint every run to make it to the barbell for max repetitions in the time that window that is provided for each cap.

At 3, 2, 1 GO … Athletes will have 8 minutes to run 1 mile and then perform maximum deadlifts at a super maximal weight. SCALE the run and WEIGHT as needed to preserve the intention today. For instance, if the fastest you can run our mile is 8 minutes, then please scale it to a shorter distance. To give you at least a chance to perform 7+ reps. If deadlift isn’t a movement you can do today – adjust to another movement that is similar – farmer carry or even a yoke carry could be used if dealing with certain position limitations.

when time expires in the first movement, athletes will IMMEDIATELY move into a 10 minute window .. another mile sprint but now max rep power cleans.

Finally, when time expires a new clock of 12 minutes will be set … athletes will go DIRECTLY into the final mile run and overhead squats.
