Coaching Tips: Hustle between the movements in the first rounds to bank some reps. Eventually you’ll need to start breaking them up and at that point it is best to break them up into equal sets. That said, try and spend a bit more time resting in the middle of the set and don’t burn up time walking between movements. The midline will be taxed so make sure you are conscious of keeping your core tight and not rounding or hyper extending the back on the squats.
Optional ‘Cash Out’: 2 min row, 1 min burpees over rower, 2 min row
