Coaching Tips: The barbell starts on the floor. Try to go unbroken if you can on the back squats, rest at the top more often if needed. Use a high bar style to save the low back for later. Make sure you don’t round the back on the bumper plate burpees, and that you lock the arms out with the bumper plate overhead! Start the run with a conservative 400, but then run hard on the last 400m.

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 8 toes to bar, 30 double unders, 4 rounds
