Four Loko (5 Rounds for time)

On the 4:00 x 5 Rounds: 20/15 Calorie Row 40 Double Unders 7 Front Squats (185/135) Rx+ 205/135 General Working through 5 rounds of this interval workout You'll complete the 3 movements as quickly as possible and rest until the next 4 minute window begins Rounds begin on the 0-4-8-12-16 Your score is the total time of the 5 rounds combined We want rest today in order to keep the intensity on the higher side, so cap each round at 3 minutes, or 1 minute per movement Double Unders Choose a double under variation that you can complete unbroken in around 30 seconds each round Front Squats The barbell comes from the floor for the front squats, so it should also be a weight you can clean Choose a moderately heavy front squat weight, but something you'll complete unbroken every round It is ok to squat clean the first rep
