Top tips:

Break all into manageable sets especially the thrusters.  

Workout Description:

Set your timer to count up.  Start with the Thrusters then move on to the Toes to DB/ Crunches, Jump Overs/Step-ups and finally finish with Single Unders/DB taps.  Take the total time and post into wodify.

Movements:

Thruster: Feet are set just under the shoulders in squat stance. Elbows in front of the dumbbells, dumbbells rest on your shoulders (front rack position). Hips descend back and down, bringing hips lower than top of knees, lumbar curve maintained, knees in line with toes keeping elbows off knees in bottom position, hips and knees extend rapidly, then arms press up and overhead. Complete at when standing tall.

Tip: wait until you have squeezed your bum before DB's travel overhead. Then wait until DB's return to your shoulders before you descent into your squat.

Crunch: hands behind head, feet anchored, crunch rib cage down towards pelvis.

Jump Overs/Step-Ups: Feet start under your hips/shoulders, dip slightly and jump high brining your knees as close to your torso as you can landing softly over object. If you are stepping up to an object, fully stand at the top before you step back down.

Single Under Skips: 1 Rotation of the rope under your feet. Keep feet together and hands close to sides. Move your wrists rather than big arms swings. If you have Double Unders as a skill - use them! If you don't have a rope then toe taps to a single dumbbell is a great sub (1 toe tap = 1 skip).
