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 sandbag/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)!
