Ugly sweater (Time)

“Ugly Sweater”

40 minute time cap

2 Rounds:

90/70 Calorie Row (70/50bike) (1200mrun)

70 Wallballs 20 / 14 lb (30/20)

50 Power Snatches 75 / 55 lb (95/65)

30 Burpee Box Jumps (24″/20″)

– Conditioning Category: Pacer

– This a BIG 2 rounder. Pacing will be a big focus in this workout.

– The medball should be a weight you could complete 25+ wallballs unbroken when fresh.

– Men throw to 10 feet, Women throw to 9 feet

– The barbell should be a very light weight. It should be something that you could complete 20+ power snatches unbroken when fresh.



1. Guys can aim to row around 1000+ cals per hour. Ladies can aim to row 800+ cals per hour. The goal here is not fast strokes. We want strong drives through the legs with easy recoveries.

2. Break the wallballs into 2-7 sets. We want to pick the break up strategy that allows us to stay moving with minimal breaks.

3. Break the power snatches into 3-5 sets. Even though the barbell is light, we dont’ want to smoke the shoulders, especially in the first round. Let’s be a little more conservative in round 1 and aim to push the pace and sets in round 2 if it’s there.

4. Find a controlled pace on the burpee box jumps. Be sure to stand all the way up on the box before jumping or stepping back down.

5. This workout is won by the athletes who can speed up or maintain their pace from round 1 in round 2. Being more conservative in round 1 will likely lead to better success in round 2.
