Coaching Tips: This workout if needed can be split up into a few heats starting 2 minutes apart. Have people partner up for the first set of Bench Press so they can share a bar/bench, it’s only a buy in. Everyone will need their own bar for SDHP and burpees though. Make sure you scale this appropriately. If you cannot do 95lb/65lb SDHP use a lower weight or use the Kettlebell, Do NOT use an empty barbell for these).

Compare To:  New Workout!

Optional ‘Cash Out’: None.
