DESCRIPTION

STRUCTURE: In Part 1, athletes will have 15 Minutes to complete 6 sets of 2 Front Squats. In Part 2, athletes will complete as many rounds as possible in 12 Minutes of 3 Double Dumbbell Front Squats, 3 Pull Ups, and 3 Box Jump Overs. Athletes will add 3 reps to each movement every round.

STIMULUS: “THREE STRIKES” is a Threshold workout.

STRATEGY: Athletes should try to hold onto unbroken Front Squats as long as possible. Athletes should try to maintain small quick sets on Pull Ups. Athletes should find a consistent pace on Box Jump Overs as their strategic passing movement.

SCALING: If needed, athletes can decrease their weight for Front Squats and use a band on Pull Ups.

SCORING: In Part 1, athletes’ score will be their Heaviest Load. In Part 2, athletes’ score will be Rounds + Reps. Example Score: If you finish the round of 12’s and get 5 Dumbbell Front Squats your score would be 4 + 5. Athletes should aim to get into the round of 15’s

-Athletes should hold onto unbroken sets of Double Dumbbell Front Squats
