With light weight, body weight, and a high number of repetitions per round, muscular fatigue will play a big factor if athletes try to hold on for large sets. While one round would be manageable for big sets, we have 18 minutes of work. Breaking the deadlifts and pull-ups into 3-5 sets will likely help delay this muscular fatigue and make breathing more of a factor. 12-10-8, 10-10-10, or 6-6-6-6-6 are options on the deadlifts, while 5-5-5 or 3-3-3-3-3 will be common options for the pull-ups. Similar to the strategy on Monday, the goal is to choose the rep scheme that allows for athletes to move for as much of the 18 minutes as possible. As much movement as possible.
