Coaching Tips: Squat snatching the OHS does count as one rep of overhead squat. Try and do this one as ‘unbroken’ as possible and make sure you hustle between movements.  A lot of time can be lost if you ‘stroll’. Make sure the 100m sprint doesn’t turn into a ‘jog’.

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 1 min double unders, 1 min row, 2 rounds
