Rug Mouse (Calories)

20 Minute Bike/Row

On the 0:00, 4:00, 8:00, 12:00 and 16:00:
8 Chest to Bar Pull-ups
8 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24/20)
50' Double Dumbbell Front Rack Walking Lunge (50's/35's)

Your score today is total calories accumulated on the Bike or Row in 20 minutes
There are five instances where you'll be off the bike, completing work that will take you away from the scored movement
Every 4 minutes (starting on the 0:00) you'll complete 8 chest to bar pull-ups, 8 burpee box jump overs, and a 50 foot double dumbbell front rack walking lunge
If those 3 movements take you 2 minutes, for example, you'll have 2 minutes on the bike before moving back to the chest to bar pull-ups on the 4:00
Choose a weight on the dumbbells that enables you to complete the 50 feet unbroken every round
Choose a chest to bar number or variation that you can complete unbroken every time
There is no need to stand to full extension on the box
