Coaching Tips: Take your time on the box jumps to avoid any ‘misses’. Use an efficient push press early on to make sure your shoulders are fresh for the wall balls. Pace the wall balls on the first two rounds so that you can go right into the box jumps on the next round, but go ‘big’ on the last set to get a good score.
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: max rounds of ‘Cindy’ in 4 minutes, OR 3 sets of 12 db curls in a super set with 12 loaded hip extensions on the GHD
