Some advice from Kate: “Do not strategize, go out hard and hang on. Push yourself to do one more rep when you think you are done and take one more step when you want to rest. Your mantra for today is ‘go before you want to,’ repeat that to yourself and remind yourself that you have to push to get better. The grip endurance will force you to break up the work at some point, keep an eye on the clock and do not walk away from your KB’s while you rest. Using grips will help you avoid the need to chalk up excessively.”
