If the row takes longer than 45 seconds, or if you trip up on your double-unders, redo that segment before moving back to the other exercise.


Scaling
If you’re unfamiliar with row pacing or a sub-0:45 time is unrealistic, row 250 meters at max effort in the warm-up, then add a few seconds to that to create your target time for the workout. This workout forces you to row at a near-maximum effort or it won’t count and you’ll have to repeat the work. Athletes who struggle with double-unders might want to switch to unbroken single-unders or reduce the number of double-unders each round.

Intermediate Option
5 rounds for time of:

Scaling this WOD
Adjust the movements and reps so you can keep moving for the duration of the workout. The volume of squats will be high, so choose a ball that is manageable. The volume of double-unders is also high in this conditioning workout. If you can do them, this is a good opportunity to practice large sets while fatigued; if you struggle with double-unders, reduce the reps so you can keep moving and don't stall on the rope.
