Coaching Tips: Be careful not to hyper extend the lumbar on the kettlebell swings. This will be hard for people with tight shoulders, and it will only get more difficult after a round or two of bear crawls and pull-ups. Break the kettlebell swings up if needed. The bottom of the pull-up will be hard for some people, but this is a case where we need everyone to really hit full extension at the bottom. Some extra mobility between sets of the lift should help.

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 4 min max calorie row or airdyne/assault bike
