Sequence

The sequence of this workout is determined by the athlete. Any set or rep scheme may be used. The only requirement is to complete 100 repetitions of each movement.

Modification

The athlete should choose a moderate weight that will allow them to complete five to eight repetitions of the Man Maker without breaking. If the athlete can perform more than eight repetitions without breaking they should increase their load.

The Leg Tuck may be substituted for Toes-to-Bars. For beginngers or deconditioned athletes, the Burpee may be substituted for the Man Maker. If dumbbells are not available, kettlebells may be used.

Strategy

The overall key to success is to choose a set and rep scheme that will allow you to keep moving smoothly through the workout. With a moderate weight, 20 rounds of five repetitions each is a good starting point. For example, the athlete will complete five Toes-to-Bars followed by five Man Makers, and repeat the sequence 20 times for a total of 100 repetitions each.

Score

Your score will be the total time it takes to complete 100 repetitions of each movement.

Be sure you have adequate space to safely complete all the movements. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people, or other obstructions.
