*Women’s “As Prescribed” weights and reps (Rx)

Scaling Guide:  3 – 6 rounds.

Coaching Tips: DO NOT Drop the bumper plates unless they are below your knees. You need to be in control of them. 5 Burpee penalty if you drop it. Be sure to drop the hips and keep the back flat each time you pick up the plate (especially when tired). Flipping the plate onto its edge before lifting it is a good strategy for saving your grip and getting the plate a bit higher when you go to pick it up. Try to ‘run’ during the farmer carries. The slower you move, the longer you have to hold the plates.
