Coaching Tips: Shoulder press will get heavy, especially in later rounds after the burpees. Stay focused on every set of shoulder press and don’t let the hips or knees bend at all. Really focus on squeezing your butt and your abs to keep rigid. Try to do the chest to bars unbroken as long as your hands are holding up. Sprint through the end on the burpees, because you have that minute rest!
Optional ‘Cash Out’: none
