Coaching Tips: Choosing a different starting position can affect your score!  We’ve found that starting on the row, or starting on box jumps can help people get more reps.  Plan on getting lots of reps on the movements that you are good at or that are ‘fast’ (push presses and box jumps).  Do work, but don’t push yourself too hard on the slower movements (rowing and wall ball).

Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: None.
