Coaching Tips: Keep yourself strict on the synchronized burpees and wait until you and your partner are both on the ground before starting the next rep. Start slow until you have the timing down. Do not hyper extend your back on the burpees. Take turns on the double unders, but let the person who can do more get more of the reps done. The lunges do not have to by synchronized, but they should be completed by both partners. Hold the plates in a pinch grip at the top of the plate (rather than sticking your fingers in the hub or holding the bottom, that would be a ‘scaled’ version).
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: None.
