Coaching Tips: Even if you cannot do more than one double under at a time, consider doing this one at the ‘Performance’ (Rx) level for record keeping purposes. Make sure you get set up on the rower during the rest interval each round. If you aren’t great at rowing and you want more burpees, start getting off before the minute is up (the same thing goes for double unders). Make sure you are using your wrists for the DUs to save your shoulders for the burpees later on.
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 3 sets of 8-10 wide grip strict pull ups in a super set with 15 glute bridges
