50 Rounds for Time
*Perform each round as a complex
BRIEF ~ 5 MINS
WOD Design and Logistics
Today’s session is a repeat from 20th April 2020, that last time we were in a Level 4 lockdown. We are moving through a range of bodyweight gymnastics movements in the form of a complex. We won’t really need a lot of space, just a wall and about a body length or two in front of that.
This is a simple, yet rather effective, benchmark workout that takes a couple of rounds to feel how the movements come together so use the prep time to get that into your system so the workout part is more efficient.
The total time taken to complete all 50 rounds
The intent for the workout is to use it as a benchmark (from 200421 for those that did it). It is a workout that tests our agility between gymnastic patterns in a chipper style format. If we can get a good flow going with our transitions and remain unbroken during the complex, we will experience a good amount of intensity.
Burpee: We can elevate our hands or use the no push-up burpee option.
Push Up: Elevating our hands or use the negative portion of the rep as the focus.
Jumping Jack: In the rare instance these may need to be scaled, a march on the spot with a clap above our heads will work.
Sit-up: With or without an abmat is fine for this movement.
Handstand: Any of our Handstand variations will work well, free-standing, wall assisted, wall walk, pike handstand or even a plank hold (15 seconds) will get us there.
