A Guide Strategy and Pacing ALL Metcons

CrossFit is difficult to pick a pace because of the variety of movements and speeds. It's tricky to know how much the deadlifts will impact our handstand push ups, or the run will hinder our pull ups. Unlike running, where we can pick a target pace, say 5Km in 20...
