Skill Practice Warm Up: Spend 10 minutes working up to a challenging bench press for 2 reps (80-90%). Or perform 4 ring dips (assisted or weighted) each minute on the minute for 6 minutes.
Super Set: None.
Metabolic Conditioning: “Beach Ready 3.0”
For time, with ‘buy in’.
15 bench presses (Health: 55lb / Athletic: 85lb* / Performance: 155lb)
Then 5 rounds:
5 knees to elbows
10 shoulder presses (Health: 35lb / Athletic: 55lb* / Performance: 95lb)
15 box jumps (Health: 12” / Athletic*: 20” / Performance: 24”)
20 American Kb swing (Health: 26lb / Athletic: 35lb* / Performance: 53lb)

Scaling Guide: 13 – 20 minutes. About 60-90s for the bench press, then 2:30 per round. Scale Up: 185/115 bench, 85/135 press and 53/70lb kb).
Coaching Tips: Set up a few bench/floor press stations so everyone can go into this in ‘waves’ (and have spotters). The last people to go should be the most comfortable with the weight (and probably the fastest on the rest of the workout so they can try and ‘catch’ up to everyone else). The load should be challenging, but not able to be completed in one or even two sets. It should take at least a minute to complete. Keep the shoulders packed and engage the lats. Do not let the hips rise up off the bench. Make sure the knees touch the actual elbows or forearms (not the triceps). Shoulder presses need to be strict with no hip or knee involvement. Break up the swings to save your hands and to finish the last sets strong.
‘Cash Out’: None.
