For Time …
1k Row, 50 Double Unders, 30 Wall Balls (20/10 lbs),
500m Row, 25 Double Unders, 15 Wall Balls,
250m Row, 15 Double Unders, 10 Wall Balls
13.2 will be announced later tonight! What will it be? People around here are guessing it will be heavy. What would you like to see? What would you not like to see? I would love to see a 2k pop up in the next 4 weeks, but we’ll see what happens.
In the first week of the Open we saw a basic body weight movement, the burpee, paired with a complex lift, the snatch. When attacking this couplet it helped to have a game plan and your movement had to be efficient. It’s almost guaranteed there will be more challenging couplets and triplets that require both efficiency and a game plan.
Today’s Rowing WOD should be attacked with a 2k in mind. It will also give you an opportunity to practice efficient movement and accuracy with the double unders and wall balls in the heat of battle. Row the first 1k at 2k pace just like you would row the first 1,000m of your ideal 2k. Don’t be afraid to go after it! In the second round row the 500m as if it were the third 500m of your ideal 2k. Execute and don’t let the spilt go higher than 2k+1. In the third round it is all down hill. Go all out and see how fast you can sprint 250m, just like the finish of your ideal 2k.
Post your guesses for 13.2, your overall time, and your average splits for the 1k, 500m, and 250m to comments.
