Champions Club Scaling Notes
Let me tell you about biking. I walked to high school every day, and now as a business owner I’ve walked to the gym every day for the last 11 years. So when Marathon Matt asked me to ride a bike alongside him while he ran one of his 20 mile workouts I came to the realization that I had not sat my butt on a bike seat probably since 5th grade. You know the saying, “It’s like riding a bike”? Well… it’s kinda true. After like a minute I got the feeling back and the ride went really smooth. Until it didn’t. About two hours into this little adventure I temporarily forgot how to use the handbrake and instead of running over our gym’s favorite marathoner I decided to steer my bike into the side trail and wiped out. I have never felt so unathletic in my life. That concludes all I wanted to tell you about biking. I realize this information brings nothing of value or relevance to this workout.
Using fatigue (cardio/endurance and stamina) to challenge our accuracy, specifically with jumping
Do I want to test my jumping today or do I want to practice my jumping today?
Rest as needed between each round
AMRAP in 15 minutes of:
Bike some amount of time
75 singles/30 double unders (or 15 touch-and-go box jumps)
*jump rope/box jump reps must be unbroken
As is, sub touch-and-go box jumps for triple unders
Lower-body – see if you can use fatigue to challenge the accuracy of a handstand or some other upper-body movement. So one movement that makes you breathe heavy and one accuracy movement of your choice. Throw something together that lasts for about 15 minutes
I did 60-50-40-30-20-10 of double unders and mountain climbers; forgot my time, maybe 11 and some change
GENERAL FEAR LEVEL: 5, although I don’t have a bike nor a plural amount of triple under jump ropes, so I’m not the best judge on this one
