Coaching Tips: Don’t go too hard on the row if those overhead squats look daunting. Overhead squat must go below parallel or drop to a weight upon which you can go below parallel; scale to front squats if necessary. Run hard since the lunges are not too technical (and you will catch your wind on the lunges and handstand push-ups). Be careful with the kettlebell swings- 60 is no joke! Break them up into smaller sets, and be sure to keep virtuous form – keep that chest up! If you don’t have enough rowers, sub 12 rounds of 2 reps 95/65 muscle clean, 2 reps of burpees. If you can’t run, 3 rounds of 40 single unders, 4 reps of 20′ (6m) out and back shuttle.
