Sunday's Post Washougal Workout (Broken Streak)
by Racer X Virtual Trainer
Think you can go all out like the pros do in a 450 outdoor moto? Time to prove it in this all-out AMRAP (As Many Reps As Possible) workout. Mike Alessi put in a great ride in moto 1 to hold off Ryan Dungey's charge for the lead....twice!
The challenge is to see how many rounds you can complete in the same time (36:08) it took Mike Alessi to win the first moto at Washougal. This challenge will take focus and determination to notch a top result!
The number of reps are based on Mike's number #800. 8 and 16.
Warm up with either a 1 mile run, a 5 mile bike, or 2000 meter Row or SkiErg
250 meter row (or 100 skips of a jump rope)
Tuck jump = 16 reps
Burpees = 8 reps
Air Squat = 16 reps
Knees to elbows = 8 reps
Couple of Rules:
- Tuck Jump - knees must come past your hips.
- Burpees - You MUST touch your chest to the floor. Jump at the end is optional.
- Air Squats - quads have to go past parallel. In other words get those butts close to the floor!
- Knees to Elbows - ummm, well, your knees must touch your elbows.
How to do the challenge.
- It's very easy to follow. Set a stop watch for 36 minutes 8 seconds and start rowing (or jumping rope).
- Perform 16 tuck jumps then immediately do 8 burpees, then immediately do 16 air squats, then 8 knees to elbows.
- Once you complete the knees to elbows, go back to the rower or jump rope and repeat the circuit until time runs out.
- Goal is to do as many circuits as possible in the allotted time.
