Metcon (AMRAP – Rounds and Reps)
“First Mate’s Watch”
6 minute AMRAP
1000m/900m row (Max of 4 mins on rower)
then with remaining time, max rounds of:
10/6 Kipping HSPU (scale 10 DB shoulder press)
Rest 1 min (after 6 mins is up)
then repeat the whole thing with the row (then resume where you left off on the HSPU/DUs)
Scaling Guide: 4-7 rounds
Push the pace on the rows, but make sure you leave a bit of juice left to do a fast set of HSPU and Double Unders.
If you aren’t as good at DU and HSPU, then row even harder because you’ll have more time to catch your ‘wind’.
For the HSPU, the legs may feel a bit heavy after the row so cue to ‘snap’ the legs hard (lazy legs = harder kipping HSPU).
Keep your hands narrow for the DUs. If you let your arms drift out, your shoulders will be more fried for the HSPU.
