Coaching Tips: Keep the dumbbell path close to the body and don’t let them drift way out in front (turning it into more of a curl). Be sure to use a good hip drive on the push presses. For the forward / backward runs, push the pace on the sprint going forward and be more careful on the backward run so you don’t trip! When you transition from backward to forward, avoid a big explosion and stressing out your Achilles/calf (explosive change of directions here can cause a calf strain).
Optional ‘Cash Out’: 60s plank, 30 cal row, 3 rounds
