In "Fancy Pants", athletes will move through a 21-15-9, segmented with running between each set. Stimulus wise, we are looking for a load that we feel comfortable cycling for 21+ repetitions unbroken, when fresh.

At the start of the workout, we are heavy on the barbell reps. At the tail end of the workout, it flips… it becomes a running workout.

Purely for perspective, in the first three "rounds" of the effort, we’ll a point in the workout where we’ve completed 57 reps on the barbell, but only 400 meters of running. In the back half of the workout, there’s a portion where we’ll complete 600 meters of running, with only 18 reps on the barbell to break it up.

In the front half of the workout, let’s pace our running. Our first 200’s should be our slowest. Moving at a recovery pace here allows us to strive for the bigger sets inside the gym. And when the set counts reduce towards the back half of the workout, we can increase our running speed.

As a micro-goal for the workout, the final three runs should be our fastest. Not just the final, but the final three.
