Coaching Tips:

Keep the form tight and make sure the push presses don’t have any extra knee bend.

Especially when your abs get tired from the sit ups, take extra care to keep them engaged on the push presses and don’t let the lumbar hyper extend.

A lot of time can be made up for on the runs, but be careful on the first round so that you can come in and go right into the push presses for a good sized set.

The final run is the one to really ‘open up’ if you have more gas in the tank.
