#MainlineMonday; CFML’s High Powered Open Gym Workout Of The Week:
- EMOM x 20 minutes
Minute 1: 200 meter run
Minute 2: 6 devils press (50/35 LBs) + 6 DB step ups (24/20 inches)
- Decrease the run distance or sub it out for a machine (should take around 50 secs) Scale weight accordingly. It should be a tough workout but the weight shouldn’t be the limiting factor.
Some advice from Coaches: “It’s a long, grindy workout so the key will be pacing so you aren’t sprinting the first rounds when you’re fresh. Try and be as efficient with your movements as possible so you aren’t wasting time or energy.”
