You knew it was coming. Well, here it is. Karen. The goal is to keep it under 10 minutes. Be sure to choose a weight where that can happen. Doing 150 reps at 10# is better than 72 reps at 20#.

      If the ball accidentally dropped I picked it up without rest and finished set (happened a couple times) rest between sets was about 5 seconds.

    20s up to 80, 10s up to 150. Held the ball between all sets… not sure that was a good strategy? Breaks seemed long…

    Thought I’d only done it once, with 6lb and scoring 110 reps. Apparently I’d done it with 8 and got 113. Still a PR though 🙂

    Yep, still suck at wallballs. It’s ok, I’ve come to terms with this over the years. Maybe next time we can do 150 pistols or something else I would have a chance of beating Kevin at lol 2 sets in under 5 mins…who does that??

    I’m sure there were a quite a few no reps in there but I squatted and threw the ball 150 times…I have the extremely sore legs to prove it.

    Next time don’t pace the first rounds so much – plan breaks
    Rep scheme worked well – 15s up to 100 then 10s, if dropped in the middle of a set pick it up without stopping
