Stimulus

The intended stimulus for this workout is that of a 12 round heavyweight fight. This is the type of workout people are talking about when they try to describe a "Hero" workout. Its gonna take a while and everything on your body is going to hurt. The key to this is to slow down to a pace where you can stay steady and knock out big sets with short breaks. If you rush and redline it could take a lot of time to get back to work. But you gotta push it when you get to the 2nd set of Burpees. Its almost done!


Scales and Mods

Everything here is low skill bodyweight movement’s that most of us can do. So what you need to be careful of is the volume. There's a lot of reps to do here and it can end up taking a really long time if you’re not in that kind of shape yet. That’s not the intended stimulus. Here are some ways to scale back the volume…
