We had a quick chat with Ben:

1. Ben did you try this workout? If yes, what was your time? And how did you like it?

Yes, I did it. I did the OPEN version in 1 hour, 31 minutes. It was brutal and a mental roller coaster with lots of highs and lows. Having said that, it was a great challenge and I was very happy to finish it with a respectable time.

2. 100 rounds = hard mental challenge. What would be your suggestion: how to tackle on a long MetCons like this one?

Setting short term goals. The first goal was to complete 25 rounds. After that, I set my sights on completing 50 rounds in 45 minutes. After that it was 2 rounds at a time. The goal should not be speed, or 100 rounds merely to keep moving at a steady pace.

3. Do you might know what’s the best time so far?

Michele Letendre did the Regional version in 1 hour, 17 minutes.

4. What’s your training/programming philosophy?

Your goal is to become a three headed monster. Top athletes in this sport have strength, skills and conditioning. Your goal is to be feeding (improving) all three heads at the same time – every month, every week, every day.  If you have a serious weakness in one (one head is smaller than the other two), feed it more until it’s as big as the others.
