“Karen’s Tax Break Program”

150 x Wallball (20/14lbs)

**Every break in a set of Wallball = Double/Single Under Tax before continuing**

Tax Brackets:

II. Intermediate Scaled: 10 or 15 reps x Double Unders (+10/15 reps per tax event)
III. Rx: 20 reps of Double Unders (+10/15 reps per tax event)

Notes:

  • Today is a task priority workout; there is an additional objective of completing this WOD in as few sets of Wallball as possible. See below for a breakdown of the ‘tax incentives’.
  • There will be a 15:00 time cap.
  • Every time an athlete rests/breaks up a set of Wallball they will complete a Double Under or Single Under task before returning to the fight.
  • First tax is 20 reps of Double-unders or 30 reps of single-unders; each tax after the first adds +20 reps/+30 reps respectively.
  • ie. First tax = 20/30 reps, Second tax = 40/60 reps… etc.
  • Scaled Volume = 100 reps… however, Corrections won’t scale soooooo…..
