25 KB Swings (24/16 kg)
50 Double-unders (unbroken)
*DU need to be unbroken or you start the round again.
We’re finishing the week with a light, metabolic couplet of KB Swings and DU. The workout is pretty straightforward, but the catch is that there’s a penalty for breaking up the Double-unders. This will make the workout a bit more focused on the Double-under and the skill of stringing together big sets!
A workout like this takes the focus away from big sets to possibly smaller sets with the KB to help manage heart rate and to focus your energy on proficiency with DU technique. It is a good mental switch to try workouts like this and to challenge intensity and efficiency in different ways!
The key to success on this workout is to feel ready to rock when you begin each set of jump-rope reps. Don’t pick up the rope and start counting until you are mentally prepared to go for it! This may slow the pace down during the transition, but that’s OK! We’d rather have you slow the transition pace, start when you’re ready, and go entirely unbroken, instead of tripping and having to restart your set, netting you more work!
