Coaching Tips: Get through the first wall balls as fast as possible, but plan on breaking up later rounds into small sets with small rest. Broad jump big, but there is no penalty for how many reps so ‘bounding’ in fast succession is not a bad option. For the bumper plate carries, move fast and put them down often if you can’t do it unbroken. Don’t walk slow and end up holding them even longer!
Optional ‘Cash Out’: 1 min plank, 40 foot suitcase lunge, 3 rounds
