Scaling
This long couplet will challenge your will as much as your body. Choose reps and loads that allow you to maintain a steady pace with limited breaks. You may or may not be able to complete the squats in one set, and the later rounds will be particularly challenging. Newer athletes might want to reduce the duration of the workout.

Intermediate Option
Complete as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of:
20 burpees
10 ¾-body-weight back squats

Beginner Option
Complete as many rounds as possible in 15 minutes of:
12 burpees
12 empty-bar back squats
