20 seconds doesn’t sound like a lot of time, but trust me, if you keep a good pace, by round 3 it will feel like an eternity!  Keep a consistent pace in the movement during the 20-second bursts.  Fight the urge to take the foot off the gas for one round when it gets tough.  Again, your score is the slowest round in each movement.

Box height -> 20/16 -> as needed (ELITE: 30/24)
