Scaling Guide: 5 - 9 minutes, about 2:15per round. Scale Up: 105/155lb bar.

Coaching Tips: Keep the bar close to the shins on the Deadlifts and an upright 'high bar' for the Back Squats to save the low back. If you know you can do more than one round unbroken, consider scaling up. The pace on the Lateral Shuffle should be fast to keep intensity up. Remember that there is no line touch with the hand, but one foot should cross the line for each rep to count.

Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 25 Cal Row, 25 Kipping Pull Ups, 25 Cal Row, OR 3 sets of 15 Single Arm DB Bent Over Rows in a super set with 15 Loaded Hip Extensions
