Practice Double-Unders for 10 minutes. If you have Double-Unders, work on Triple-Unders!
Post work to comments.
30 Minutes Not for Rounds:
20 Hollow Rocks
10 Dumbbell Bench Press
Sub about a minute of Double-Under practice for dubs if you don’t have ’em. Or, scale up to 10 Triple Unders if you’re a jump rope ninja. The DB Bench Presses should be medium-heavy and feel like you could perform another 2-3 reps each set.

The End Is Here!
By Chris Fox
Hard to believe that this year’s Look, Feel, Perform Better Challenge is a wrap! Please get your Post Challenge Submissions to us no later than this Wednesday, March 28th. We recommend that you take some time, 1-2 weeks, to let loose just a little bit. Don’t go off the rails entirely, but do allow yourself a few treats that you may have been avoiding (great time to experiment with your Red, Yellow, and Green Light Foods!). If you’ve been counting macros, put your scale away and eat intuitively for a few weeks. If you’ve made some changes to your body composition, you need a little time to let your body adjust to the new version of you. If after the short break you still want to make more changes, get right back on your plan. If you’ve been counting macros and you’re still progressing then there’s no need to change the numbers. If you’ve stalled out a bit and your goal is to lose body fat then you can drop your carbs and/or fats by 10-15% to create a further, small caloric deficit. If your goal is to gain mass and you’ve stalled then you can bump all your macros up by 10-15%. In both scenarios you’ll follow the new numbers for about 12 weeks, then take another break before deciding where you want to go with it.
We’ve programmed the Capacity Test WOD (in bold below) for tomorrow, March 26th. If you can’t make class on either that Monday or Tuesday then simply ask a coach for some space when you can do it and we’ll accommodate you. Open Gym is another option. Maybe you can find a few friends looking to do it together on the Facebook page! Use the same version of any scaling options you used initially, or make note if you chose a more difficult version of the workout (like now you do pull ups instead of jumping pull ups). If for any reason you performed a different test workout then re-do that same one and submit it with your Post-Challenge Submission.

Regardless of how well or poorly you think you did these last 12 weeks we encourage you to follow through with the Post Challenge Submission. It can provide a platform for some healthy introspection on what does and doesn’t work for you. Also, it’s important to note that some while some habits might have been hard to follow right now, it doesn’t mean they won’t be a bit easier to follow in the future. You are constantly evolving as you learn and practice…and it all takes time and practice. One thing we know for sure is that getting down on yourself for being “bad” won’t help. There is no failing, only learning. (very Miyagi, no?)
