Koala and I did this way back and it turned me on my head. The great thing about set time domain wods is that everyone finishes at the same time. Coaches start the workout by 20 past the hour to allow for a group stretch. Focus on the hips, lower back, and opening up those shoulders. Mucho Love, Sheppy
