This longer workout has a time cap of 30 minutes
If you hit the cap, put 30:00 as your score and put total reps completed in the notes section

To maximize time spent moving, we can use 3 barbells today if you’d like
Choose weights based off the following recommendations:
Lightest Bar: A weight you could cycle for 15+ reps unbroken when fresh
Middle Bar: A weight you could cycle for 12+ reps unbroken when fresh
Heaviest Bar: A weight you could cycle for 9+ reps unbroken when fresh

Rope Climbs happen once, right in the middle of the workout
Choose a rep number or variation that allows you to complete the work in less than 6 minutes

Any time we row for meters in a workout, it can be helpful to try to just get in the rower and start pulling
Unlike rowing for calories, where a higher power output is beneficial, we can start accumulating meters fairly quickly, even with less powerful strokes
That being said, let’s try to push the pace on the power snatches to get to the machine a little quicker
Whether small sets or fast singles, pick the option on the barbell that will keep you moving as much as possible
After the inital slower pace on the rower, try to settle into something that is around 10 seconds slower than your 2k pace
For Example:
If your best 2,000 meter row is 8:00, your pace per 500 would be 2:00
Today, you may try to hold around 2:10 as your pace per 500 during the workout
Consider the following options on the Power Snatches:

Lightest Bar:
1 Set: 15
2 Sets: 8-7
3 Sets: 5-5-5 or 6-5-4
Middle Bar:
1 Set: 12
2 Sets: 6-6
3 Sets: 4-4-4
4 Sets: 3-3-3-3
12 Sets: Singles
Heaviest Bar:
1 Set: 9
2 Sets: 5-4
3 Sets: 3-3-3 or 4-3-2
9 Sets: Singles

With a lot of upper body pull in today’s workout, let’s focus on quality rope climbs
Prioritize a good foot lock and stand the with the legs to help take some strain off the upper body
Take short breaks between these single repetitions to preserve good movement

Working upper body push and pull in today’s Body Armor piece
In these supersets, you’ll move right from the pull-ups to the rings
Rest 2 minutes following the ring movements to preserve quality
Complete all three rounds of the top superset before moving to the bottom superset

Use a dumbbell or weight vest to weight the strict pull-ups
This should be a challenging weight that allows you to complete the 5 reps unbroke
If unable to do pull-ups with weight, use the heaviest amount of your bodyweight that allows for 5 straight reps (band as needed)
The second percentage is based off your estimated max set of strict ring dips
For Example: If you max set of strict ring dips is 10, you’ll complete 5 strict ring dips per set

There is no external weight used for the second superset
Complete as many unbroken strict pull-ups as possible before moving to the ring push-ups
This should be a difficulty that allows for 7+ reps to be completed (band as needed)
See below for a visual of the ring push-up
This should be a difficulty that allows for at least 10 push-ups to be completed (complete regular push-ups if needed)
