Thursday was Helen, Friday it’s Elizabeth. Two classic, benchmark girl workouts. Beyond that though, they’re pretty different. Helen features relatively straight forward movements, and by virtue of the running a top score is almost double a comparable time in Elizabeth. The exercises in Elizabeth’s couplet are more complex, and as a result the workout can be scaled in myriad ways. We’ve done this a few times before (last back in June, just 4 short months ago), and we’ll certainly do it again. However you choose to get after it, take a peak at your journal, give yourself a goal for tomorrow, and set the bar high for the next time we see Elizabeth.
