Coaching Tips: Choose an overhead squat weight that is challenging but that you can complete the first round unbroken with (later rounds broken okay). Same thing goes for the box jumps, choose a challenging height.  In both cases, if you are not comfortable on rounds 2-4, think about dropping the reps before dropping the weight/height. THAT BEING SAID – Overhead squats are to be full range of motion.  Below parallel or they do not count (drop the weight or scale to front squats).

‘Cash Out’:  100m run, 25 cal row, 4 rounds
