Scaling Guide: 11 – 17 minutes, about 7.5-10 min to finish rounds 1 and 2. Scale Up: 135/85lb barbell

Coaching Tips: Be careful on the squat clean thrusters – keep the elbows up to avoid hitting your elbows on your knees. Complete the first set in as few sets as possible, but do the later rounds in small fast sets. Pace the first run so you can come right in and do the next set with the barbell with very little pause. Speed up on the last round if you can. Switch arms as necessary on the lunges.

‘Cash Out’: none
