Coaching Tips: Don’t let this one’s nice name and simple scheme fool you.  It can be one of the hardest workouts you’ve done in a long time if you aren’t careful. Keep a steady pace on the burpees and try to save your shoulders a bit for the clusters.  The clusters are a squat clean into a thruster.  The dumbbells must touch the floor each rep (one ‘head’ of the dumbbell is fine). Today we want to see full hip extension on the clean (not a ‘squat then curl’).  These will gas many people quickly, so try breaking them up and then keeping a steady pace on the burpees.
Optional ‘Cash Out’: 60s plank, 25 cal row, 5 min
