Getting Ready for Murph
Some Pre-Workout tips for Murph:
Take care of your hands - If they get rough, file them down using a pumice stone, callus shaver or pedi-egg, for tough guys and gals, use a dremel or fine grain sandpaper (really, both work great), moisturize regularly with lotion or Vaseline petroleum jelly
Make a strategy - Take it easy on the first run. Capacity: > 19 rounds of Cindy? Consider breaking up the pull-ups/push-ups/squats into 10-20-30. 13-18 rounds of Cindy? Break up into 20 rounds: 5 pull-ups -10 push-ups -15 squats or 25 rounds: 4-8-12 depending on how crowded it is. < 12 rounds of Cindy or when push-ups begin to be a real struggle? The coach will go over scaling options or consider 5 pull-ups, 5 push-ups, 15 squats, 5 push-ups.
