When I first saw the 19.2 workout, I thought to myself, this is not going to be easy! This is what it looks like on paper:

25 toes-to-bars
  50 double-unders
  15 squat cleans, 135 lb.
  25 toes-to-bars
  50 double-unders
  13 squat cleans, 185 lb.
If completed before 8 minutes, add 4 minutes to the clock and proceed to:
  25 toes-to-bars
  50 double-unders
  11 squat cleans, 225 lb.

I was literally scared every time I thought of doing it. I didn’t think I would get to the squat cleans as I have never actually done double unders. Luckily for me, there are two versions, one is the Rx version which is shown above, and then there is a scaled version, shown below:

25 hanging knee-raises
  50 single-unders
  15 squat cleans, 95 lb.
  25 hanging knee-raises
  50 single-unders
  13 squat cleans, 115 lb.
If completed before 8 minutes, add 4 minutes to the clock and proceed to:
  25 hanging knee-raises
  50 single-unders
  11 squat cleans, 135 lb.

The scaled version is the one that I went for as it suited my capabilities quite well. Manageable but still a big challenge. 258 repetitions completed in the second round, have a look.

Now to prepare for 19.3
