Scaling Guide: 84 - 160 (finishing the 16 burpees to finishing 24).

Coaching Tips: Squat snatch it from the floor if you can. Try to do these unbroken (or only resting on the back) if you can. Keep the back strict on the rows, no bouncing or 'kipping'. Push the pace on the burpees in the earlier rounds, but slow them down a bit once the volume adds up. Always finish with a fast pace because of the rest.

Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: With a partner, 30 cal Row, 30 Russian KB Swings, 3 rounds OR 3 sets of 20-30 Banded Face Pulls in a super set with 15 Loaded Glute Bridges
