Coaching Tips: Keep the chin up strict and make sure you go to full extension at the bottom of every rep. You may need to adjust your grip width to make that happen. Use a jerk for the dumbbells if you have the timing and technique down (go lighter if not). Suitcase lunges are done with holding one dumbbell in one hand at the side. Keep the chest up and make sure the knee touches the floor.
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 15 push-ups, 20 light kb swings, 5 minutes, OR 3 sets of 12 strict weighted ring dips in a super set with 15 loaded glute bridges
