Dumbbell Clean and Press for power, upper and lower body coordination. This is going to be a stable movement for the next 4 months. Take the time to get the technique. Cable Rows and Ring Push-ups. A Burnout 4th set to induce more muscle growth.
 
Secondary Option 2: Conditioning and fat loss option
Full body burn, The harder the client goes, the more efficient it is. The Clean and Press is still a skill movement, so let them take their time on that, the metabolic effect will still be strong.
