Coaching Tips: Get through the rope climbs as fast as possible, even if it will affect your first round of knees to elbows. The grip will be fatigued, so be prepared to break up the first round of kb swings. Watch out for a hyper extended lumbar on the kb swings! We want to make sure that the back stays flat on both the bottom and the top of the swing. Keep the chest up on the goblet squats to save the low back!

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 20 wall ball, 200m run, 5 min
