Another longer AMRAP is another opportunity to dial in pacing. The nature and rep schemes of these movements make it a little more manageable to strategize than other workouts. On the rower, looking for a feeling that is slower than athletes 2k pace. 3 sets on the pull-ups is a safe bet to maintain throughout most of the workout. This could be 9-7-5 or 7-7-7. On the burpee box jumps, looking to move at one consistent pace for all 15 reps. The cycle time here matters less than constantly moving on these.
