Coaching Tips: Be sure to force yourself to keep your legs locked on the first round of strict/shoulder presses. Don’t go to failure unless it is you last rep. It is better to drop it a few times, doing multiple fast sets.  For the burpees facing the bar, you must be perpendicular to the bar when your chest hits the ground (no laying down laterally –side next to the bar).  Both feet must leave the ground at the same time, but it doesn’t matter if they land at different times.
