Scale Up (IF YOU THINK YOU'LL MAKE IT PAST MIN 14): Do 5 reps the first minute, then start on 6 on the second min, 7 on the 3rd min, etc.

Compare to: CrossFit Classic

Coaching Tips: Take note of the scale up if you think you'll make it past minute 14. You'll do the first 5 'rounds' in the first minute (5 reps), then jump into the round of 6 reps. This still counts as "Rx" (but it is really a scale up). Spread out the burpees over the whole minute, but leave 10-15 seconds at the end of each round to rest... until you can't anymore. Avoid hyperextending your back at the bottom and rounding your back when you stand up. Use a pad to protect your knees if you have one available.

Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 20 KB swings 60s plank, 4 minutes, OR 3 sets of 12 db bent over row in a super set with 12 banded good mornings
