· What is the workout we will be doing?
o “Helen Meets Grace” – see below for description.
This is a TWO-PERSON team workout with one person working at a time, except for the 400m runs, which must be performed together.

HELEN consists of THREE rounds of: 400 meter run (both partners run together), 21 kettlebell swings (Rx 53/35#) and 12 pull-ups. Partners can tag-team in and out of the kettlebell swings and/or pull-ups as needed.

Once all three rounds of HELEN are complete, the team immediately moves on to perform GRACE which consists of: 30 clean and jerks (Rx 135/95#) as fast as possible, partitioned anyhow between the two team members.

Score is total time for the team to complete both workouts!

I think that covers everything but please let Jamie, Danny or Phil know if you have any questions!!!

See you there!
