Coaching Tips: Make sure you stand up all the way on the squat cleans (before lowering the bar into the next rep), and that you don’t ‘thruster’ the first shoulder press. There needs to be a pause before initiating the press. Step ups on the box jumps would constitute a ‘scaled’ variation, but jumping up and stepping down is encouraged. The kb swings should be broken up if needed, but since the rest is built in, try and do these in as few sets as possible. That said, if form starts to break down (and we see any excessive tipping forward of the torso for example), the coaches will stop you and possibly make you drop the weight. If you finish the 4th round in 15 or less, consider doing the 5th round.
Optional ‘Cash Out’: None (Do you really need more after that workout?)
