Coaching Tips: Push the pace on the first run a little bit but save some energy for the burpees. Pace the burpees and make sure you are not hyper extending the back when you come off the ground. Take these at a steady pace and try not to do too much work on the way down. Think “down fast”. For the db bent over rows, hinge at the hip and keep the back flat. Face the ground with the torso as much as flexibility will allow (to parallel or near parallel). These are ‘strict’ so no kipping or ‘body english’. Make sure they are full range of motion.
