Coaching Tips: Unless you plan on doing the whole thing unbroken, break up the first round into two or three sets! Start slow and speed up. Don’t waste time (i.e. chalk hands) moving between Thrusters and Pull-Ups. As soon as you drop the bar, jump up and do a few pull-ups, and then rest while chalking up (if needed).

Optional ‘Cash Out’: none
