**“If you want to be truly successful at it, you cannot be content with pretty good.” – Tim Grover**
Pretty good is decent.
Pretty good is average.
Pretty good checks the box.
Pretty good...  is the enemy of excellent.
How we do anything is how we do everything. And there is nothing in life worth doing half-assed. Although we recognize the truth behind that statement, every single one of us can improve on this. To refine this habit – to truly blast through “good enough”.
What actions this week have been “pretty good”? When these opportunities come around next week, what will we do differently?

* There are a couple ways to approach a workout like this
* Both options are designed to give athletes targets, whether that be time or reps, to keep them consistent across the 5 rounds
* The first option is to set the time you are working for each minute
   * In this strategy, there are two common options
   * The first is to work for 40-45 seconds straight and rest/transition for 15-20 seconds
   * The second is to complete two rounds of 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest
   * Understanding that we're working for 5 rounds - the 20/10 option may be more sustainable
   * The tabata or double tabata style approach can help keep you on track each round
* The second option is to set a goal number for each movement
   * For example, you could try to hold 15 reps across each movement for each round
   * For this option, it's important to set targets in the first round that you're able to sustain in round 2-5

* For the bike, the work/rest does not apply like it does with the wallballs and hang power snatches
* Since this movement comes right before rest and because it isn't broken up - athletes are simply working for the whole minute
