The two workouts this week have two very different theme flavours about them – though they’re both quite intense in application.
Scoreboard is a series of exercises done for a prescribed time – where you are trying to max out either distance, calories or reps. Over the course of 7 exercises, you will accumulate points, and you can either compete against friends, or yourself over two attempts. Max-out workouts can be pretty gross, so we’ve put a fun spin on it. Its also interesting how having the motivation of friendly “competition” at something puts things into a more tolerable light.
Going fast and hard on a first attempt is one thing. Experience and knoweledge go a long way into understanding how moves work, how combinations of actions feel, and what the threshold’s presented are. So over three rounds, and ever-decreasing repetitions – even though you are fatiguing – can you accelerate your work pace? Knowing that the reps are less, can you off-set that by moving through them more quickly? An interesting application. Let’s try it.
