When it comes to longer stints of aerobic conditioning, ie) metcons, it's important to spend a few moments strategizing your approach before diving in.
Creating a pattern for your reps and rest periods will allow your body's oxygen intake to remain consistent, keep muscle fatigue at bay and have you finishing efficiently and strong. So next time you approach that chipper beginning with 100 wallballs, keep these two things in mind:
1. Try creating a pattern you can stick with, ie. 20reps, 10sec rest, 20reps, 10sec rest, ect...
2. Do YOU! Don't get caught up with the pace of the person next to you. Stick to your own script.
Don't blow your WOD!
