Today’s workout is the most repeated non-traditional strength set we do at The Hut. So if you have been around a while, then you have done it plenty of times and no doubt have an idea of where you stand in terms of completing an unbroken set of 20 reps. Doing this at home (like we did back in April- watch the video for a reminder of where we were both physically and situationally in the early quarantine days) you will not have the full array of equipment that you are used to… so you might have to go a bit too heavy too soon OR never quite get there in terms of overloading. Take it easy in the warm up, there’s plenty of time. And, if you can’t overload with weight, then do it by adding reps. On your own, or with us on zoom. See you tomorrow on SugarWOD regardless.

To go heavy and unbroken even though there are 20 reps in each round. Warm up well so that you can begin as heavy as you can for the first round. If you hit that load for unbroken reps- then either go heavier OR add a rep or 2 to each movement. Both of these tactics will increase the total volume lifted. It is preferable that you add weight. But if you don’t, add reps. You are completely welcome to do this with a barbell if you like… Rx is 70/50kg!
