for time:

9 wall walks

10 wall-ball shots

6 wall walks

10 wall-ball shots

3 wall walks

10 wall-ball shots

♀ 14-lb ball to 10-ft target

♂ 20-lb ball to 12-ft target

Goal: Midline and upper-body endurance. Aim to finish in 10 minutes or less.

This workout will give us a dose of humble pie. The first set of wall walks is a high number and will keep us busy for upward of a minute to 1:30. In contrast, the wall-ball shots will likely take the same amount of time each round, which means the first 2 rounds of wall walks will compound quickly. The higher target for the wall-ball shots adds an element of difficulty that will increase the demand on the core, making the wall walks much more difficult. To make things even more challenging, the arms are overhead for a good portion of the workout.

If you can't throw higher, throw heavier.


– Warm up the wall ball to the 10-foot target because that first set can take you by surprise.– The wall balls were enough to slow down my wall walks.– The shoulders will fatigue but the demand on the core had my wall walks feeling really sloppy.

This means:– Get a good warm-up.– Focus on proper mechanics and positioning for the wall walks: Tight hollow body, neutral spine and short steps.

Scaling:

Intermediate athletes will use the standard loads and target heights for the wall-ball shots. Since athletes will not get fully inverted, they may find their cores to be even more challenged.
