With strict handstand push-ups leading off the workout, much of today’s strategy will be centered around managing upper body fatigue with a high heart rate. Although these numbers appear small on paper, they are not as innocent as they look. While athletes are capable of holding on for a couple rounds unbroken, fatigue will likely start to set in somewhere around the halfway point. Reaching failure on any movement means a much longer recovery time between repetitions. Breaking all of today’s movements once to twice may seem conservative at first, but maintaining a rep scheme on purpose over the course of the 12 minutes is more beneficial than breaking up reps because you are forced to.
