    7 rounds of:

    3 Squat complex
    5 Pull-up
    (Scaled to ability in each round)
    :30 sec. rest

    Squat complex weight is self-scaled, and should pose a significant challenge in each round. Each rep should be difficult, violent, and positionally sound. Kettlebell is held in the Goblet position.

    Sound position and full range of motion govern weight- especially in the jump squat. If chosen weight compromises either, adjust immediately and continue safely.

    1 regular squat + 1 jump squat + 1 left lunge + 1 right lunge = 1 rep.

    Advanced pull-up suggestions include: Weighted, L-pull-up, chest-to-bar, negative. No kip, no butterfly.

    Then, as quickly as possible:

    30 Burpee
    30 calories Airdyne
    200 Jumprope
    1 minute battle rope

    There is no designated rest here; Safety considered, there is great value to making yourself move in simple conditioning drills. Transition fluidly and immediately from one movement to the next, mind your breathing, and move efficiently.

    And then, 5 minutes of:

    5 Dowel/ “Prison” Abmat sit-up
    :10 sec. reset

    Take rest in each round; If you don’t feel you need it, move quicker and more aggressively in the sit-up; Make yourself tired.
