What is good time for hero WOD Klepto?
Accroding to our app good time for Klepto is 17min 57sec and from my experience that is pretty hard to beat.
Key of good time in Klepto lays in consistency across all movements you just have to keep moving because there are many box jumps, many burpees and some squat cleans and if you want a good time there is no place to rest.
If you are good on box jumps you have advantage because you can do them quickly but if you hate them like me than jumping up and steeping down or jumping up, resting on top of the box and jumping down should be good idea.
Burpees always hurt and it’s better to go slowly but keep moving, plus you must save some energy on squat cleans.
And for squat cleans, they are relatively easy but I was surprised how heavy they were after all the box jumps and burpees. In my opinion in such long workout doing singles is only correct solution if you are looking for the fastest time.
I’ve finished Klepto in 18:36 and I must say I was really destroyed from this WOD. My friend beat me by 3 minutes with time 15:20 and I have no freaking idea how he did it. Anyway I think that any time under 20 minutes in Klepto could be considered good time.
