Scaling Guide:  3 – 5 rounds

Coaching Tips: The dumbbell burpee cluster: 1 burpee (chest on ground between the dbs), into a deadlift (stand all the way up, with hips and knees fully extended), 1 hang squat clean (hinge back down and clean weights to the shoulders, catching in a squat), into a thruster (drive up out of the squat, and as your hips hit extension drive the dumbbells off your shoulders to a locked out overhead position). = 1 rep.
