Coaching Tips: Push the pace on the barbell since the lateral shuffles can only go so fast. Real ‘go-getters’ can try to transition from the last thruster right into the SDHP (but don’t be stupid and hurt yourself if you can’t do it efficiently). Be sure to keep good back and shoulder discipline on the sumo deadlift high pull!  If you are rounding the back or internally rotating the shoulder, slow down or drop weight.

Optional ‘Cash Out’: With a partner – 30 wall ball, 60 double unders, 3 rounds
