Coaching Tips: You can start on any movement, but they must be completed in any order. For example, if you start on sleds, you will finish with the thrusters before the rest interval. Make sure your elbows are in front of the clean before lowing the bar/dbs (and that you are standing tall). Play to your strengths so if you can get more reps on the cleans or thrusters, try to get more reps there.
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 1 min kb swings, 2 min row, 1 min kb swings, OR 3 sets of 15 db bent over row in a super set with 15-20 loaded hip extensions
