Coaching Tips: Keep the ring rows strict! Go a bit faster on the burpees and the kettlebell swings because you’ll catch some of your breath on the ring rows in later rounds. Do not hyper extend the lumbar on burpees. Make sure the kettlebell swings are going fully overhead, but do not hyper extend the back on these either!
