Not necessarily because of time constraints, but because I was on the verge of puking and collapsing.

If I had gone completely anerobic from the gate, I probably wouldn't have finished that fourth round.

If I can get 5 rounds next time, then I think we have a measurable improvement.

Is this faulty logic?

In a sense it is faulty logic because now how do we know what your level of exertion is. You might get 5 rounds next time but is it because your more physically fit or because your working at a lesser level of intensity?

Re: Resting between rounds

Oh and to answer the OP's original question...I rest when I need to. If that results in a slower time or less rounds so be it.

Re: Resting between rounds

Jason,

Fran isn't really paced because at a high level it doesn't need to be, but for Murph, no one can sprint through it, so you have to pace. Whether you want to pace by taking set breaks or slowing the cadence is up to the athlete.

Do I stay on the deadlifts until I can get all 5 (if I get like 4, I'd rest for like 5-10 sec, then go for one more rep, then move on to pull ups) or do I just move on to pull ups since I couldn't do anymore?
ou never short-cut yourself of reps. If you can only get 3 reps and it calls for 5, rest a few seconds and bang out 2 more!

Yes. For an AMRAP workout your "score" is the number of rounds completed in the assigned time, and more is better.

Yes. With the exception of a few workouts that have prescribed rest intervals, the clock keeps running while you rest. To get the fastest time, keep moving.

i think this is the answer to the thread ^:

rest when you NEED to, not when you WANT to
