Coaching Tips: Being able to do the first round of front squats unbroken is not a requirement (but it is probably a good idea as a rough guide for scaling). Ideally the third round should only be broken up into no more than 3 sets. Even less is better.

For the burpee pull ups, the bar needs to be higher than your reach. As in: if you stand flat footed with your arms above your head, you are not able to grasp the pull up bar in the palm of your hand. Anything higher is extra.

Optional ‘Cash Out’:  Out: 4 Rounds of 5 Ring Rows, 10 Push Ups, 15 Squats.
