Coaching Tips: Scale this one so that it is a ‘gasser’ (high cardio respiratory demand). For some this may mean dropping the dumbbell weight or scaling the Chest-to-Bar to pull-ups, jumping pull-ups or ring rows. Try to avoid using your shoulders on the burpees as much as possible and use as much hip drive as you can manage on the thrusters to get the weights overhead – otherwise the shoulders will blow up first slowing you down significantly. Use the burpees to moderate intensity. Do the thrusters without putting down the weights if you can (pause at the shoulder if needed). Move fast on the chest-to-bars going in big sets if possible, but don’t risk tearing the hands!
Optional ‘Cash Out’: 1 min plank with minimal rest, 1 min skip rope (double unders, single unders, cross overs, etc.) 3 rounds
