Coaching Tips: You can start on any movement, but they must be completed in the order listed. Pace the first round a bit so that you know how you’ll feel on the later rounds. Play to your strengths and try to get the most reps on the movements you are best at. Don’t go too hard on the burpees and the rowing until the last round. The chin ups mean that the hands must be palms toward you.  Break these up into small fast sets. A kipping chin up would be considered a substitution.

Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 12 db thrusters, 35 double unders, 4 minutes, OR 3 sets of 12 db shoulder press in a super set with 15-20 loaded hip extensions
