“Hope” has the same format as Fight Gone Bad. In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of “rotate,” the athlete/s must move to next station immediately for a good score. One point is given for each rep.

    HS walks went ok, kipping rope climbs went ok. L-sit doesn’t exist, so neither do L-sit rope climbs.
    Hope: 180RX. draggin’ today.
