Coaching Tips: The workout is two rounds of the same movements followed by a minute rest. Try and keep a steady pace through the first round and then pick up the pace in the second round since you will get that minute rest. If range of motion (squatting below parallel, etc) is a big issue with your overhead squat then scaling to squat cleans and front squats will let you use more weight and get a much better workout.
