Coaching Tips: Front squats are from the floor (as usual). Try to get these done in one set for the first round or three. The supine ring rows will become challenging but keep the form legit and break them up more often. Arms straight on the Russian swing and try to make it feel like you are ‘throwing’ the kb away from you. Pace the run so you can come right back in and hit the rest of the stuff hard but run hard on the last 400m!
