“Extended Elizabeth” is much more challenging than the classic benchmark that inspired it. One of the most important things to do today is to strategically break the movements up into manageable sets.
Use a loading that you can cycle for 7 reps or more in a row for multiple sets.
Use a ring dip variation or rep scheme you can finish in 3-5 sets each time. You need to be able to finish most sets of ring dips in 1:00 or less.
Consider breaking the first two movements up into 3-4 sets no matter what. This way, you can control how hard you go in the remainder of the workout and you will avoid putting yourself in a position of accumulating too much fatigue.
For example, you can break the set of 21 into 7-7-7 or a descending scheme like 9-7-5.
