Coaching Tips: Pace the burpees so you can try and do the overhead squats unbroken. If you can, use a more narrow grip to save the shoulders. Avoid using your arms as much as possible on the burpees also to save the shoulders. Move fast on the transitions, you should be dropping for your first burpee each round before the bar settles!
Optional ‘Cash Out’ 30s per side, side plank, 30 cal row, 3 rounds, OR 3 sets of 12 single arm db press in a super set with 15 Bulgarian split squats
