17.4 & Finale Party!


We Have A Winner!!!

Congratulations to Joanne who was first to the party with her prediction that 17.4 would be a repeat of 16.4. She’s also the first person to win our Guessing Game this year and this week’s prize of a FREE Month. It’s been a tough year to predict the workouts, but a repeat at some point is usually a good guess. Well done Joanne!!

If you did this workout last year, then you already know it’s a tough one. The deadlift weight doesn’t seem so bad, until you get to about 20-30 reps in. The wall ball number seems not too high, but your legs are pretty wobbly from the deadlifts. And then there’s the row – yet another leg taxing movement. Finally, you move on to the handstand push-ups, where the real separation occurs. A good kip can go a long way on those, but there is no substitute for lots of practice and some strength work along the way. If you skipped those days when you saw handstand push-ups programmed, you may regret it during this workout. It’s all about setting a good pace and trying to stick to it. Focus on what’s in front and keep moving.
