Coaching Tips: Plan on breaking up the 21 squats at least once. Only do the 21 unbroken if you think you can do the whole workout unbroken. Be sure to keep an upright torso and maintain a good rack position. Drive through the heels and maintain good knee positioning (track the feet and don’t let them cave in). For the pull ups, drop off the bar often to prevent possible hand tears.
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 10 db bent over rows, 10 burpees, 4 minutes, OR 3 sets of 12 db bent over rows in a super set with 15 banded good mornings
