Coaching Tips: The strict pull-ups will be a choke point for some, but don’t be afraid to start with them and then keep them up until 4 is just too many to complete in any given round. Bar muscle-ups and strict pull-ups are interchangeable here so if you start with those, you may save that pulling motion a bit until the later rounds. Don’t get lazy on the runs and jog in if you know you are going to break up the pull-ups into small sets (run hard and catch your breath during the small sets.
