Julian thought it would be "fun" to make the hop overs the prescribed workout. So - thank him for that!
The way this works is that you have 2 min to do the 30 hop overs and then do as many Devil Press as possible with the remainder of the time. At the end of 2 min you will rest 1 min and repeat 4 more times.
For the hop overs - it's pretty simple, hop over the dumbbell laterally back and forth. Each jump counts as a rep.
A devil press is BASICALLY a burpee with dumbbells in your hands. You do a push up with hands on the dumbbells, jump or step the feet in. Pick the dumbbells up from between the feet with heels down and arms straight (keep the back flat!!). Use the power from the legs and the hips to basically complete a combination KB Swing - clean and jerk - snatch.
The movement finishes with the elbows locked and biceps by the ears! Control the lower and keep the back flat as you set up for the next rep!
You SHOULD be able to get at least 10 reps each round! Shoot for that or more!
If you don't have the appropriate dumbbells or need to scale to a lighter option, you may do plate burpees OR a burpee into a KB swing as a sub!
