Coaching Tips: Each squat clean counts as a rep, and each jerk counts as a rep. Start at a steady pace watching the clock. Your first three minutes should be about the same pace each minute; then speed up on the last two minutes (as much as possible). Squat clean to thruster to jerk may be the fastest way to attack this. But for many people (if the weight is decently heavy for them), the best way to approach this is to power clean, front squat, then split jerk. This one won’t be very ‘intense’ if people go a bit heavy and really focus on form (as they should). Have them do the cash out if they feel the need more of a ‘kick in the pants’. Try to end class a bit early so there is some time for this.
Optional ‘Cash Out’: 60s t2b, 60s row for Cal, 3 rounds
