Coaching Tips: Keep a steady pace of small sets and clean form on the snatches. Power snatch to overhead squat acceptable. The goal is to have one larger set at the end as you finish them out. Focus on keeping the chest up on the pull. Get through the chest to bars fast and remember to use a big kip (lots of hip action). Pace the first 400m at a medium pace and then speed up on the second half. Sprint out the last 100m at least!

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 40 burpee pull ups on a bar that is just out of reach
