Workout of the day

AMRAP in 20 minutes
40 weighted step-ups
60 sit-ups

Workout notes

Today’s workout is a long duration time priority couplet with high rep counts for each movement. Forty weighted step-ups is a hefty task so use a weight that keeps you moving slow and steady or ditch the weight and just perform these at bodyweight. If you are new to this style of training or you’re not accustomed to this volume consider cutting the number of reps for each set in half so you can keep moving without reaching failure. When the workout is finished your score will be your total number of completed rounds and any additional reps.

Scaling

standard: bodyweight step-ups, 1/2 reps per round
rx: 50/35 lb, abmat sit-ups
sport: 65/45 lb, abmat sit-ups
overachiever: 75/55 lb, strict weighted sit-ups 75/55 lb
