Coaching Tips: Wear long pants, or bring something to protect your legs for the dumbbell weighted pull-ups! The knurling on the dumbbell handle can rub your skin raw if the dumbbell slips down mid pull-up. Most people will find it best to hold the dumbbell very high next to their hips and then cross their ankles.  Remember to use the hook grip on the dumbbell power snatches and to alternate hands often. For the bear crawls, move quickly in bursts then rest on your knees. Slowing down and moving slowly just means that you are spending more time under tension and using more energy to go the same distance.

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 60s wall ball, 60s row for cal, 2 rounds
