Hey everyone. I'm new to the board and very eager to start the program. What I'm not certain about is the rest periods between sets. For example when the WOD stated,
For twenty minutes,
-7 double under rope jumps
Does that mean that you preform all three exersizes back to back as one large set with no rest in between? After that a little rest and on to the next "superset"?
Same when the WOD states,
For three rounds,
Only some rest when you have completed all three exersizes?
Am I correct?
Thanks a lot, Jan.

Yes to both. Usually, you get to rest only between "rounds" (however those are specified in the WOD).
If there's no specific rest time given in the instructions, you're usually welcome to take as much rest as you want or need between rounds. Sometimes the rest interval is specified, too.
If the WOD merely says to do some sequence for a specified time (usually 20 or 30 minutes), then it's up to you to try and manage your rest so as to get the most possible number of rounds in the available time . . . it becomes a problem in "fatigue management".
Similarly, if the challenge is to complete all 3 rounds in the minimum total time, well, then take rests wherever you need to (for me, that will sometimes be in the middle of a set if I have to break the 12 pullups into groups of 3 or 4). But you take as little rest as possible in order to minimize total start to finish time.
