Scaling Guide: 4 – 7 rounds, about 1:20 per round. Scale Up: 35/53lb kbC

Coaching Tips: Alternate arms as desired.  Be smart about when you break things up so that you avoid putting the dumbbell down (splitting each set up between each arm for example).  Hook gripping the db is encouraged. The db can be held in the hand in any way that makes sense (in the rack, overhead, at the side, etc.), but you can’t rest it on your shoulder, head, etc.

Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 2 min max cal row or air bike, 2 min double under, 2 min row or air bike, OR 3 sets of 15-20 banded tricep press downs in a super set with 15 loaded glute bridges
