Scaling Guide: 72 – 176 reps. Scale up by doing 70/53lb kb swings and doing the HSPU strict (or without an abmat if you are a lady).
Coaching Tips: Pace carefully with the HSPU. Break them into smaller chunks early on. If you know that you’ll get stuck on them, don’t scale down the range of motion (more abmats), instead, scale down the reps (do 3 every round for example).
