“Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” – Peter Drucker
In business, this is ever important for leaders to fully understand. That the culture of a team is everything. Over any marketing plans, product launches… anything.
The same mindset is true for us as athletes.
We’ve all heard the line, “it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog”. And we believe it to be true. The picture perfect strategy, executed half-heartedly, will always be beaten by the less-than-ideal strategy, but executed with full heart.
Our character is our backbone. During round 4 of “Kelly”, or the final minutes of an Open AMRAP, it will not be our “workout strategy” that we fall back to. It’s something deeper. Cultivate that, and everything else falls into place.

For Total Load:
5 Sets of 4
– Use a belt or squeeze a dumbbell between the thighs or feet.
– The idea here is to choose heavy loads across.
– If you cannot an unbroken set of 4 strict pull-ups with any weight, complete 5 x 4 reps with bands.
– Score: Enter loading for each set. Overall score with be the sum total of these weights.

– This will be a workout we repeat. Be sure to log your score so we can link it next time around.
– Row: Should be completed in 1:00 or less.
– Wallballs: Should be completed in 1:00 or less.
– Score: Total time including rest.
– Let’s make the wallballs the priority of this workout. We want to pus for unbroken sets or 1 break at MOST on these each round.
– We can decide our pace on the row based off our wallball capacity. If you are working on your wallballs, let’s row a little slower. If wallballs are your jam, let’s push ourselves on the row a bit.
– During your rest periods, really work to slow down your breathing with some deep breaths. Slowing the breath will help slow the heart rate.
