Post choice of workout and time to comments.


Scaling:
If choosing Test 1, modify the movements and reduce the dumbbell load to something you can perform quickly and unbroken. This workout is a sprint, and should be scaled to allow for a quick, all-out effort.

If choosing Test 2, be careful of the high volume of each exercise, especially with the GHD. Athletes without exposure to the GHD should drastically reduce the volume. Overall this workout is fairly long, so choose modifications that are still challenging, and plan on having to break each exercise multiple sets.
