Coaching Tips: The faster your cal/hr on the rows, the less total work you will do. The key on this workout is to push yourself on the rower so you do less total work (even if you have to rest a moment before going onto the next movement). Make sure you practice a good start on each cycle with a 1/4, 1/2, then full pull to get the flywheel up to speed. Watch the cal/hr to try and be consistent from cycle to cycle. Here is an article about cal vs meters. Only do the bar muscle ups as long as you can do them without a 'chicken wing'. The pull up / ring push up option is still considered 'Performance'. Use a big kip and avoid a large press out at the top. Avoid wasting time on the transitions and keep your speed up due to the longer rest intervals.

Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: None.
