Notes: Prescribed is 71/55 full swings. This is a more advanced, high volume workout, so be sure to stay safe and scale the weight/reps/movements as needed. Newer athletes should perform this workout as 6-8 rounds with 400 meter run and 10-15 reps. If your arms are sore from previous pullup workouts, substitute another movement that you would like to work on. No matter what, the goal is to stay moving for a minimum of 30 minutes.
