The CrossFit Journal just published an awesome article about whether or not to break up your reps in a CrossFit workout. Plus it's written by Pat Sherwood which makes it extra good reading! Check it out here: http://library.crossfit.com/free/pdf/CFJ_2016_10_Unbroken-Sherwood4.pdf

Today's workout is a great example of this neverending debate. Should you get that bar on your back and try to do all 27 reps unbroken? The answer to that question depends on if you scaled it correctly and if you think that doing 27 unbroken reps won't completely destroy you for your 21 rep round!?

It all comes down to what you know that you are capable of and what the workout entails. Either way this is always a conversation that should be going on between your ears when you are figuring out a game plan for any workout.
