I am back again here to talk with y’all about 20.2. It was so good to see all your comments last week! All is well here in SF except you all are not here! But I was pumped to see all your scores, last week was a doozy! Proud of all y’alls work!
Okay, let’s get into this. This is another work out I AM SO AMPED UP ABOUT! All of these movement are my jam.
So here it is…20.2…. is….
4 Dumbbell Thrusters (50/35)
6 Toes To Bar
24 Double Unders
Work outs like these can be super deceiving. If you are proficient at all of these movements (or scaled movements) low rep scheme plus a long time frame can translate into LOTS OF VOLUME, so let’s talk strategy.
Toes to Bar:
This is an AMRAP and if RX is maybe something you’d shy away from in class in an effort to keep moving or because the coach tells you to, or if you have some toes to bar but not a ton. I’d say this is the work out to GO FOR IT! Do those RX Toes to Bar! See how many you can get. It’ll be an awesome milestone to track and a huge accomplishment!
If you have toes to bar but not high volume, be smart. BE SMART! Even if you are feeling like hot stuff :60 into this work out. Break them up, into sets with 2 or 3 reps in them.
Same goes for the dubs, 24 is a low rep count for double unders and practice is helpful for these suckers.
These are double dumbbell thrusters. DB thrusters might get a little sticky. Personally I wouldn’t do the RX weight if I knew that I wouldn’t be able to do all 4 unbroken the whole time, or at least be able to consistently string 2-3 reps at a time. Dropping down to singles is going to really be a lot of wasted energy so chose your weight wisely.
This work out is some what similar in nature to 20.1 in that you’ll want to pace out the first half and then put the petal to the metal during that last stretch.
Team, as always, go have fun and make me proud!!
