“The Chief” is meant to feel really uncomfortable. Almost anytime there is built-in rest in a workout Interval style, it means that the “working portion” is meant to be done fast. And since the rounds in this benchmark WOD are only 3 minutes long, you’ve got to go hard and ideally unbroken. At the end of this workout, everything in your body should be burning–”The Chief” hits the lower body, upper body, core, and lungs.

After each 3-minute cycle, start where you left off at the end of the previous cycle. Record total rounds completed.
