Coaching Tips: Hustle on the plate carry/runs to get started on the lunges, it is okay to get a bit winded since the lunges and push presses will give you a chance to catch your breath.
The first row each round should be at a conservative pace, with the second one being much more aggressive because of the rest.
Keep your posture during the runs and don’t let the plate force you to round your back.
For the lunges, keep the shoulder back and abs tight. The dumbbell push presses need to be push presses (and not push jerks)!
