REPS, LOADING, VOLUME…
1min of rest before the next set.
Scale the reps down on the Front Squats or Burpees first, then think about scaling the distance on the run.
Unbroken on the FS is the goal so let’s find a weight that will challenge athletes but allow them to finish the reps under 1:00
Back Squats — Deadlifts
Front Squats — DB Front Squats
Run — Row 500m or a 2:00 effort Row/Bike
