STIMULUS and GOALS

The second set of this workout is focused on smart sets and managing fatigue.
WORKOUT STRATEGY & FLOW
Row: this is a moderate/hard pace. Aim for 1300+/1100+ pace for those of you who are solid at rowing.
Overhead squats: these ideally unbroken and quick sets. Find a rhythm and stick with it. Make sure to keep the grip relaxed here in prep for the rowing and toes to bar. No more than 2 sets here.
Toes to bar: Push for big sets here. Ideally 1-2 throughout both workouts. If you know you’ll have to do less than 5 at a time, scale the reps.
Remainder of class to be spent on goals.
If feeling mentally strong work on weaknesses.
If you just need a win today, work on something you’re good at and fine tune it.
