Jump or step on or over for the burpee box jumps.

Teams of 3 – As many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of:

1 column run

6 burpee box-overs (24 inches)

12 kettlebell front squats (55/35 lb.)

Skills

Snatch balance: work to a heavy single – no more than 1 miss at any weight. Your second miss ends the session. If you miss early on, reduce the weight and do 3 sets of 2 at a very manageable load.

Hang power cleans 3-3-3-3

Be patient and wait for the bar to get to your hips before finishing with aggression. Focus on great footwork and keeping the weight in the heels for as long as possible. Land in your squat stance. If you land wider, reduce the load.
