Move through this with a purpose. These are not traditional conditioning sets, but the value lies in our approach to these sets – let’s make ourselves work.

Part #1

15 minutes AMRAP:

Max Strict Pull-Ups

15 Dumbbell Bench Press

20 GHD Sit-Ups

25 Hip Extensions

200 Meter Kettlebell Carry*
– On the KB Carry, change our positioning of the KB’s every 50 meters. Choose a load that allows each 50 meter segment below to be completed unbroken.

0-50m – At the hang (“Farmers Carry”)

50-100m – Front Rack position

100-150m – At the hang

150-200m – Front Rack position

On our “Giant Sets”, we are looking to move from station to station with as little rest as possible. Rest as needed between sets, but aim to not exceed more than 3:00. On the pull-ups, band as required in order to find 5+ repetitions per round. On the bench press, this should be a moderate load that allows for 15 repetitions unbroken each round. Challenging, but doable for all three rounds. On the 200 meter carry, choose kettlebells that allow you to complete the course with at most (1) break.

25 Band Pull-Aparts
