Coaching Tips: This workout if needed can be split up into a few
heats starting 2 minutes apart. Have people partner up for the first
set of Bench Press so they can share a bar/bench, it’s only a buy in.
Everyone will need their own bar for SDHP and burpees though.
Make sure you scale this appropriately. If you cannot do 95lb/65lb
SDHP use a lower weight or use the Kettlebell, Do NOT use an
empty barbell for these).
