Coaching Tips: Make sure that you aren’t “rocking” the push-ups off of your quads like a rocking chair (this is a form of knee push up and not a legit push up). On the box step-ups, full hip extension is required at the top, but using the hands to push off the thighs isn’t necessarily wrong. The whole foot should be on the box so that you can drive through the heel and use some glutes.
Optional ‘Cash Out’: 15 burpees, 100m dumbbell or kettlebell farmer carry, 2 rounds
