Coaching Tips: The row can drastically affect the rest of the workout. If you are looking for intensity and you aren’t worried about the wall ball, hit the row hard! Everyone should consider finishing the row with some hip and arm only pulls (vs full strokes bending the knees). This should help save the legs for the first round of wall ball. The broad jumps should be fast and rebounding. Don’t jump so far that you have to ‘load up’ each rep (pause between jumps). Moderate the intensity by breaking the wall balls up but not wasting time between the broad jumps and wall ball.
Optional ‘Cash Out’: 4 minutes of max calorie row or assault bike
