50 Push Ups
This is no doubt a very big workout which is why it’s essentially all that’s on the menu today. According to BTWB the 95th percentile for male times to complete this workout is thirty minutes. With the average time to complete the above workout right around forty-five minutes for males (there’s not much data for the females in BTWB). Thus today’s session will comprise a badass warm up and then ample time to complete the above Hero WOD.
p.s. be smart on scaling or modifying the insane amount of push up volume.
