TIPS FOR THE GRACE WOD
- This workout was designed to be a SPRINT. When scaling, keep in mind you want efficient, not sloppy, movement to fall under a 8:00 minute time cap. Record your results and repeat the workout in the near future to measure improvement.
- Avoid going to failure. Stop 1-2 reps short of failing.
- Use a moderate to fast pace for the first 20 reps, then sprint through the final 10 reps.
Clean and Jerk
- Reduce weight so you can do 15 reps efficiently unbroken.
- Apply a 8:00 time cap.
