Coaching Tips: Move fast on the bumper plate burpees to give yourself more time on the pull ups.  After the first round (or three) the pull ups will become the sticking point and you’ll be able to catch your wind a bit.  Be careful with the bumper plate burpees since it is easy to lose lumbar control (rounded back at the bottom and hyper extension at the top).  The pull ups can be completed with any ‘grip’ you’d like. Avoid scaling to a kipping variation, keep it strict today!

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 20 reps of suitcase lunge with kb, 20 Russian kb swings, 2 rounds
