Coaching Tips: Make sure to use your legs for the push press and push jerk, just because you might be strong enough to muscle through them the first round or two doesn’t mean you should, use good technique because it’s more efficient and will get you further overall. Keep your shoulders pulled back and have a slight bend in your arms at the top of the kettlebell swing. Move fast through the burpees since you have that rest at the end.

Optional ‘Cash Out’: None.
