“Christine”

My apologies for the late post. Something was wrong with our server. My bad!

It’s back to our Benchmark Fridays! Here is a throw back, one of the first benchmarks we ever did. “Christine” is a classic. 3 Rounds of brutality and grace all wrapped into one. Row fast enough that you can get a good time, but pace enough that you can do your deadlifts in big sets or even unbroken. Then those beautiful box jumps! Oh those box jumps. Zone out, get a pace, and just go. Fast feet = fast box jumps!

– It’s been a while since we did this workout so your scale might be totally different than last time. Don’t stick to what you did before. Sometimes that is best so you can get a real close comparison but in this case go with the challenge of scaling the next level up, whatever that may be!
