“CHAD 1000X” (Time)
1,000 Box Step-Ups
Dedicated to Chad Michael Wilkinson of the US Navy who died on October 29, 2018, in Virginia Beach on active duty after 22 years of service. We have three options for the workout:
1. Slick // No rucksack. You pick the height of the step-ups.
2. Standard // 30/20# rucksack. You pick the height of the step-ups.
3. Expert // 45# rucksack. Use 20″ box for step-ups.
⁃ Overview: Today’s workout will be a grind. Staying in this one mentally will be arguably more challenging than staying in it physically. Let’s be sure to have water, electrolytes, and potentially some easily digestible carbs to help us stay moving.
⁃ Alternate legs every rep for a total of 1,000 reps (500 each side).
⁃ If you don’t have a ruck bag, load a backpack with anything available to get to workout weight.
⁃ Be sure to use a loading that allows you to complete at least 15 reps on the minute.
⁃ We’ll have a chance to practice 1 minute of step-ups in the practice round. 15 reps should be very comfortable in this time frame to go as prescribed.
⁃ Adjust height, weight, and reps as needed.
⁃ Times will likely range between 45-70 minutes. We’ll time cap this workout at 70 minutes.
– Score: Total time. If capped, add 1s for every incomplete rep.
⁃ The approach here is simple: find a rhythm that you see yourself holding for 45+ minutes of work. It can be helpful to have a target number of step-ups to complete every minute.
⁃ For efficiency in this high rep workout, the foot you step up to the box with should be the first foot off the box. This helps you quickly tap the opposite foot on the ground as you alternate legs.
⁃ To break up the monotony and keep working through smaller checkpoints, consider switching what side of the box you step up to every 25-50 reps. You can utilize all 4 sides of the box. This essentially makes it 5-10 rotations around the box for 1,000 reps.
