Do NOT do the Filthy Fifty! We will not be giving classes enough time to go through it and the D3o is a totally different workout. Since the reps are almost half of the 50 you need to keep the intensity high and move though each movement quickly.

Coaching Tips: Just keep moving. You are better off doing smaller sets with shorter rests (rather than doing a big set with long rest, or a big set then down to singles). Most people can move through the movements at a good pace to get winded, but the knees to elbows are a big sticking point. Plan on going hard on the other movements and then pacing out the k2e into very small sets in the beginning so that you catch your breath (almost like active recovery right in the middle). After the knees to elbows are done, hit it hard again.

Remember that the wall balls, burpees and double unders must be completed at the end, in the written order (because it is more difficult that way).  Crank through the wall balls at a pace that will let you get right into the burpees. Do slower burpees if needed, but try not to break these up too much.  Just fall down and get up (over and over again).

Optional ‘Cash Out’: none
