Today’s conditioning is designed to be breathy. If you find yourself breathing hard after the first round this is totally normal. I did this myself on Sunday and for the majority of the 9 minutes it was tough. If you can gut it out and keep moving it’s a great workout to help you to become comfortable with being uncomfortable. Accept that your body will be throwing messages of pain at you for 9 minutes and choose to ignore those messages and push on.
As always the reward of endorphins 10 minutes after finishing will far outweigh a bit of metcon torture.
A little explanation on heavy. This does not man an absolute max. This means a heavy weight that you can perform the squat with good technique. There will be max days and I will say max rather than heavy.
Definately in my view one of the hardest and longest of the Girl named WODs. Will take you longer than the average conditioning but this is a necessary evil so we can test you in all energy pathways. Enjoy.
