The Fallback Movement is a movement that will count as one repetition throughout the entire 24 hour AMRAP challenge. So basically, at any time during the 24 hours, you can use it to score one rep/point.
This year, as in year one, the Fallback Movement is… the Burpee.
- position A – toes, knees, hips and chest in contact with the floor
- position B – full extension of knees and hips, feet off the floor, clap behind or above the head
You could choose to use the Fallback Movement in many ways, here are four often-used applications:
- in the trainsition from hour to hour when the three new movements are being published, team huddle, who’s doing what, one athlete can do Burpees to keep the rep count going
- an athlete is unable or unwilling to perform all the movements programmed for that hour
- doing Burpees will be more efficient in terms of rep production that doing one of the three movements programmed for that hour
- you just love them Burpees so very much
In previous years, the Fallback Movement was used extensively by succesful teams to keep the rep count up and going. Choose, plan, and execute wisely!
