We’ve shot 2 different strategy videos for 12.1, but no matter how I try to upload them the FLA internets will not let them through. It’s gotta be a conspiracy; don’t know how, but it’s there – probably Pat Sherwood 😉
So… I guess I’ll just write some strategic words instead. Here:
1) Put a chalk line on the floor. This will give you a target for both your hands and feet and will allow you to jump without having to look up.
2) Use a fixed target. Rings will work, but the ability to hit something and not have to worry about it moving is invaluable.
3) Use different “styles” of Burpees to stave off fatigue. We have utilized the “step-up” style of Burpee in longer WODs many times. We did some testing yesterday and found it is around 90% as fast as a feet together style, but it also saves a great deal of fatigue in the hip flexors. I’m not saying to use this for the whole piece, but for a minute or two, to recover, may not be a bad idea.
4) Calm down. Seriously, this should be a no-brainer, but I watched 2 people go crazy out of the gate and they were gasping for air within the first minute.
Water, the mortal enemy of all Outlaws.
