Scaling Guide: 2:30-3:30 per round. Scale Up: 105/155lb back squat, 80′ overhead carry AND 80′ farmer carry every cycle.

Coaching Tips: Plan on using a weight you can do the back squats unbroken. Use a high bar technique and keep the torso vertical. Do not push off the legs during the lunges. Break up the chest to bars often to save the grip for later rounds. Only do the overhead carry if you can lock out your arms. Do single arm carries or farmer carries otherwise.
