Compare to: NEW WORKOUT!

Coaching Tips: Push the pace on the double unders to start. Make sure you do a power snatch without a ‘press out’ to make sure your shoulders can handle the overhead lunges. Minimize transitions (so switch arms often). Keep the arms close on the double unders so you can save your shoulders on the beginning and ending DUs.

Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 20 cal row, 60s per side side plank, 20 cal row, OR 3 sets of 15 single arm bench press in a super set with 15 loaded Jones squats
