THIS IS THE EXACT SAME WORKOUT AS LAST WEEK! I had the pleasure of watching the very simple elements of this workout destroy people last week. For some, conditioning wasn’t where it needs to be, but for others, desire isn’t where it needs to be if you are serious about competing in this sport. I am running this workout in consecutive weeks because if it destroyed you last week, you’ll learn a lot about yourself by how you respond to having to tackle this again so soon. Are you going to resolve to be better, or will you find an excuse and let yourself off the hook?
