Impact/Focus: Jumprope Skills & Work-Rest Primers
Versus a 10:00 Running Clock
Complete the ladder unbroken if able or work through reps assigned in as few consecutive sets as possible.
Skill Warm-up Ladder:
Double or Single-unders x 6-9-12-15-18-21-18-15-12-9-6 reps
Select your work rest ratio as 2:1 / 1:1 / 1:1.5 / 1:2
- Today’s Impcat/Focus session is intended as both a practical applied lesson plan regarding work and rest time relationships (how this applied to athlete performance) while also providing a structured Jumprope skill sharpener & METCON warm-up opportunity.
- Once the ratio for Jumprope rep assignments has been selected athletes will perform their first set of the ladder and then rest the time afforded by their ratio pick.
- 1:1 means rest the same amount of time it takes to complete each ‘rung’ on the repetition ladder.
- There is a 10 minute total time cap for this rep ladder; work and rest time management remain the priority of focus as opposed to finishing the rep ladder.
- We are looking for quality rather than intensity with this training piece.
- Athletes will be resting and recovering fully while setting up for the Metcon.

Complete for time
15-12-9-6-3 x Deadlift @225/155lbs
30-25-20-15-10 x Abmat Sit-ups
35-35-35-35-35 x Double-unders
Those athletes willing to take on the additional challenge today will be encouraged to go Rx+ with a Tire Flip task for the same number of repetitions as Deadlift.
Scale reps and apply movement substitutions and adjusted weights as needed.
An example scaled WOD writeup is shown below;
10-8-6-4-2 x Deadlift (scaled weight)
25-20-15-10-5 x Abmat Sit-ups
70-70-70-70-70 x Single-unders
Scale Deadlift weight to a standard benchmark weight that best correlates to 50-60% of a 1RM Deadlift strength ability.
Standard benchmark weight examples would be 135,155,185,205, etc.
