If you EMOM this couplet of C2Bs and wall balls could you hold on and go sub-7 minutes? Maybe start a little faster than that, hold unbroken, and we see a sub-5?

Is either (or both) of the movements in the couplet a weakness for you? Then plan ahead for intentional breaks at specific points in your rep scheme, and see if you can hold that game plan through 5 rounds and step on the gas for rounds 6 and 7.

Either way have a plan and fight to execute it. If your movement is great and your technique is clean then lean in to the mental discomfort. See what happens when you push the pace as you near the end — you might surprise yourself, and you’ll definitely learn something… other than, “yep, confirmed, I hate wall balls.”
