Even thought this workout LOOKS like a heavy BB cycling workout…its really a heavy breathing workout where you cycle a barbell. MAKE SURE YOU ANTICIPATE THAT. Don’t get surprised by the feeling of gasping for air in the middle rounds, expect it, and you’ll be better prepared for it.

Transitions are king AGAIN for this workout — particularly between TTB –> DU and BB –> TTB (anticipate that you’ll probably need to take an extra second before hitting the heavier BB).


Break up TTB early and often – you cannot afford a blow up here.

Only push these in your last round

Dus –

Start each set with a double – no singles to start

2. turn rope faster and stay low

3. place rope on ground

Squat Cleans –

Pull yourself under the bar in early rounds

Heavier bars set your brace at the bottom

Be diligent – stay close to the bar

Overall –

Quick Transitions on each movement Always move back to the ttb quickly – even on heavier rounds. Move from rope to bar quickly on early rounds.
