On a 20-minute clock, perform as many repetitions as possible (AMRAP) of the prescribed work. Start with 6 rounds of 5 x 30-second intervals of single-arm movements. Then in the remaining 2 minutes, perform max repetitions of Push-Ups.

Complete unbroken and count your reps. Best to film and count afterward. Make sure to post your scoring on this post here, that same post also contains a quick intro to the workout.

Score is the total number of repetitions completed before the 20-minute clock stops.

Tips and Strategy

Pacing is super important, if you go too fast you will fail half way through, if you go too slow then you will have less reps. Start with a moderate pace, maintain it, pick it up slightly in the middle, and go all out toward the end.

Intended Stimulus

You should feel totally gassed at the end and have nothing left.

Scaling Options

Pick a weight where you can complete the workout unbroken.
