Coaching Tips: Pay attention to the different row distances, and do choose a distance that will take you longer than 4.5 minutes. Push the pace on the row, but you should be able to get right off and go into the push presses.  These are push presses and not jerks, so the hips/knees only get to bend once per rep. Switch arms as desired for the SA OH lunges. Sit ups can be regular or butterfly.
Optional ‘Cash Out’: 10 goblet squats, 10 Russian Kb swings, 5 burpees, 4 rounds.
