PERCEIVED INTENSITY – 9/10
The time has come for us to begin retesting our Benchmark workouts! Compare this workout to 180402. GO back and check what your scaling and time were and make a solid effort to beat it! Elizabeth is a classic girl workout that tests a multitude of fitness capacities, including aerobic power, strength, and skill. This should be a fast, max effort type of workout. Give it your all. As always, the prescription levels are solid guidelines, but scale as needed (example: banded bar dips); just be sure to record what scaling options you use so you can test it the same next time, or try to scale up to something more difficult. We are doing this as Power Clean Elizabeth (rather than Squat Clean) to help allow for a more intense pace.
