Coaching Tips: Start slow, and watch the clock. After 3-5 rounds, speed up if you can. Break up the knees to elbows sooner than you might have to, and go faster on the burpees. As you get into round 8+, speed up if you can. Keep in mind that ‘knees to elbows’ means “KNEES TO ELBOWS” (not knees to triceps). And that bent elbows is fine, although not ideal.

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 100m farmer carry, 15 wall ball, 4 min

Congrats Team “Squat you talkin’ ’bout Willis” They finished 4th place this weekend at the Barbells for Bullies competition!
