For those doing the Desert Warrior Series, this may or may not be one of the WODs you’ll see at the comp.  Goal is to not come out of the gate too fast.  You have a lot of work ahead, and don’t want to be gassed right after the DUs.  But, don’t take long breaks in between movements.  Also, if you are not able to finish the row before the 13 Min time cap, the tie breaker is the time you finished the reps from the WOD.


Scaling Options:

DUs -> 150 SUs

Bar weight ->135/85 ->115/65
