*Athletes will perform as many reps as possible in each 20 seconds interval follow by 10 seconds of rest.  Rotate through the 4 events with the total time being 16 minutes.

Tips: For all of the exercises, select a movement that will allow for a minimum of 5 reps each round.  Discuss with a trainer for scaling/modifications for each movements as needed.

Beginner athletes should warm-up attempting regular, strict push-ups with the legs straight to develop upper-body strength. During the workout, perform push-ups from the knees. If at any point you are no longer able to perform 5 reps within the 20 seconds, consider modifying to an elevated push-up.

For more advanced athletes, if at any point you become unable to perform 2 consecutive push-ups, modify to push-ups on the knees. Strive to stay within 1-2 reps of your score in each round for each movement.
