    I am wrath -Am I doing it wrong?

    Ok, so, i have done twice in a
    row the “I am wrath” workout, once normal , took five minutes to finish then decided I make it EC... and I thought maybe I did not understand the workout
    correctly because I am not considering myself level 3.

    so to be sure:
    30sec : 2x pull-ups + 2x burpees
    30sec: rest
    30sec : 2x pull-ups + 2x burpees
    30sec: rest
    30sec : 2x pull-ups + 2x burpees
    30sec: rest
    30sec : 2x pull-ups + 2x burpees
    30sec: rest
    30sec : 2x pull-ups + 2x burpees
    30sec: rest

    correct?

    Your take on it looks accurate. Take up to 30 secs to do 2 pull up/2 burpees; rest 30 seconds. Repeat 4 x's. I don't think it's worth 4 bars. Maybe 2-3?

    There are some ways to make the EC harder:
    * Grip the bar wider than shoulder width
    * No kipping or butterfly pull ups. From a stopped still, dead hang each time.
    * Take 30 seconds total for the exercises AND rest. No extra time to dog it during the exercise period.
    * Make sure you are doing full burpees, not basic ones.
    * Wear ankle weights.

    And don't underrate yourself! Sounds like you beat down I Am Wrath pretty well.

      If Shikari is right about how you are interpreting the workout, I think I see the problem.

      Here's what I think the instructions are saying:
      Set a timer for 30 seconds.
      Do as many reps of [2 pull-ups + 2 burpees] as you can during that time.
      Rest for 30 seconds.
      Repeat 5 times total.

        I agree.

          Come to think of it: both Kanary and JakeT sound right. That would ramp up the difficulty to at least 4 bars.

          For 30 seconds, do as many sets of 2/2 as you can, then rest 30 seconds. Do 4 more sets.

          Whew . It's hard even writing out those directions !!

            Ohhhhhhh man! I have
            tried to read it in every direction and no it think of 39 sex AMRAP of 2x pull and 2x burpees!

            gotta try it again.

            i already do wide pull-ups, counting « Mississippi one, Mississippi 2 » on the way up and same on the way down.starting dead still without kipping

            will probably see a big difference, although I am not sure I can do more than 2 sets in 30 sec with perfect form.

                I was curios and then I tried yesterday, since I have a very short time window to my workout

                I have some logistic issues since I cannot do burpees in moment that I finished pull ups (I have to turn around a corner - i.e. a couple of second)


                I put attention to have a correct form in particular respect to the pull ups (avoiding any kind of kipping)

                In this way, I was always able to do 2 set of (2 pull ups + burpees). In the first sets, I ended around 25-26 second (i.e. in the second set I do one pull ups, since I didn't want rest for another 5 seconds)

                However, in the 5th set, I was tired in particular respect the pull up (i.e. the last one is very hard)

                the execution with AMRAP protocol is very interesting. It's a good work about resistance that combines pull and push (upperbody) strength and explosivity of legs.

                Thus, I will incorporate it at the end of some of my workouts as general back off training.

                  I have tried it again yesterday by doing “2 pullups, 2 burpees, 2 pullups and 2 burpees” in a time frame of 30 seconds, then rest. Went wide (wider than shoulder) for the pullups. Wasn’t that hard, compared to the level 3 Armageddon I did right after, but seemed more challenging.

                  now I still struggle with the description, especially with the EC.
                  Extra Credit: No rest during the 30 seconds of the combo.
                  so still not sure I understand it the way it was meant!
