Day #25 – “Castaway”

By phy6

“Castaway”

AMRAP 20:
4 Strict Pull-ups
8 Burpees
12 Single Dumbbell Step Back Lunges

STIMULUS

  • This workout is all about finding a rhythm and a way to keep moving for all 20 minutes
  • The speed we begin with should be a speed we see ourselves holding through the 12-15 minute mark
  • Strict pull-ups will be the only movement we may break up today
  • There is no wrong option here – chose a break up strategy that you see yourself being able to move the most and rest the least
  • Let’s be mindful of the total accumulated volume of strict pull-ups as we move into 12-15+ rounds
  • Burpees are standard with chest to ground and full hip extension at the top
  • Let’s keep both hands on either side of the dumbbell held horizontally across the chest during the lunges
  • Choose a weight that allows for unbroken reps (6 each side) through the whole 20 minutes
  • Your score will be total rounds +reps
