February 11 WOD: Bergeron Beep Test

One of those WTH workouts they make us do from time to time.

A. Metcon

"Bergeron Beep Test"

EMOM until failure
7 thrusters (75/55#)
7 pull ups
7 burpees


In 12 minutes, work on snatch technique.

I did a super scaled version of the WOD (35# thrusters and jumping pull ups) and it was still hard. Imagine doing all those 21 reps in one minute?! You know you have to sprint it but you also want to pace yourself so you don't burn out too soon. According to the creator of the workout, Ben Bergeron, this is his test for pure conditioning and mental toughness. Kinda reminiscent of 13.5.

My score: 2 + 1 burpee (35#; jumping pull ups); 70# (power snatch)
