The eventual winner was a 7 minute AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible) starting with 3 reps of each movement, steadily increasing by 3 each round. While this may sound an easy task to begin with, the more elite competitors will end up stringing upwards of 21 chest to bars and thrusters together. Gassy.
If you don't think 7 minutes is a long time, try this workout. The minutes will crawl as slowly as you will once you've finished the workout.
View the final workout below and enjoy the inevitable burn that will follow. Our advice this week: pace yourself, and remember to breathe.
Complete as many reps as possible in 7 minutes of:
3 chest-to-bar pull-ups
6 chest-to-bar pull-ups
9 chest-to-bar pull-ups
12 chest-to-bar pull-ups
15 chest-to-bar pull-ups
18 chest-to-bar pull-ups
*This is a timed workout. If you complete the round of 18, go on to 21. If you complete 21, go on to 24, etc.
**Use 45kg for the thrusters.
