Log your time minus one second for each burpee performed. Log in the “notes” section, your actual time and how many burpees you performed.
Coaching Tips:

If the deadlifts are heavy for you, do singles – letting the weight drop from the top every time.

You can make up time on the box jumps if you go at a steady and manageable pace.

The rows should be at approximately your 1000m pace. Hammer the pace on the final row to empty the tank.
