Coaching Tips: Go a little narrower with your hands on the snatches -then you will not have to bend over, as far, to get the plates to touch the floor.  Try to avoid pressing out the barbell at the top of the snatch (until later when you get tired).  Pressing out makes your shoulders much more fatigued for the double unders.

Optional ‘Cash Out’:  4 min row or assault bike.
