Coaching Tips: Try and go unbroken on the power cleans if you are comfortable at this load. If you are worried about your form, do small sets and fast singles, but push the pace a bit. This is a short AMRAP with rests, so if you waste too much time looking at the bar and/or getting chalk you could end up disappointed with your intensity. Change the weight during the rest if you need to. Move steady on the lunges, but stay low and fast on the burpees. There is no requirement to jump and clap (for the burpees), so if you stay crouched and move quickly you can make up a significant amount of time.
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 60s plank, 40 double unders, 3 rounds OR 3 sets of 15 single leg deadlifts in a superset with 15 single arm bench press
