Please adjust the repetitions to provide a sufficient challenge to your current ability level. If you find yourself finishing stations with less than 20 seconds to rest, please reduce your repetitions; if you find yourself with more than 50 – 60 seconds of rest, please increase the number of repetitions. If you’re not sure what you’re capable of, use the first set as an assessment; go hard for 90 seconds on each station, then try to achieve that number of reps within the two-minute intervals throughout the next two sets.
