Coaching Tips: Row at a decent pace (80-90%), but really avoid selling out (going as hard as you can). 10 seconds faster on the row can be crushing, and you’ll easily make that up on the double unders and the burpees. Go for big sets on the double unders. If you trip up, just reset and go again if you aren’t too winded. Remember that faster jumps and rope turns actually uses less energy (if you also shorten you jump height). Think of the burpees as 5 sets of 10 and pace out the first few sets, then go for broke on the last set.
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 50m farmer carry, 15 wall ball, 5 minutes, OR 3 sets of 12-15 neutral grip chin ups on rings, in a superset with 15 glute ham raises
