With two weeks to the Garage Games, my Trainer Chace suggested that I do about 1-2 of the garage games workout throughout the week to get a feel for the workouts and how to strategize for them so that way I won't be so shell-shocked come competition time.
Garage games workouts (5 min caps)
50-40-30-20-10 Double unders / sit-ups
Result: 40 double unders
Observations: I SUCK at double unders! will probably scale to single unders.
15 min break
3 rds of
10 KB swings 1 pood (35lbs)
Result: 1 round + 8 KB Swings
Observations: Went WAY too hard out of the gate. I was working out with two other people to simulate the competition. The first 10 burpees I knocked out quickly but hit the wall quickly and was hurting badly through the rest of the workout. Had I started slower I would've been able to keep a steady pace for the rest of the time. Very important lesson.
Chace also talked to me today about the key to the competition being to try and keep your heart rate lower longer by staying relaxed during the workouts and in-between them. Since each round is capped at 5 mins, fatigue won't be so much of an issue as staying relaxed during the event. It's very easy to come out hard in the first 30 seconds to 1 minute of the workout. But reving your heart rate up that quickly will burn out you much faster than the actual work, as I learned during the second workout. I'm already feeling better prepared for the games in two weeks.
