Coaching Tips: Be careful with the first round on this once since coming out too fast on it will guarantee making the later rounds much harder.  This combination will be particularly hard on the shoulders if you don’t use your hips to get the bar overhead and on the wall ball. Avoid pressing the snatches.  On the wall ball, utilize the ‘wrist flip’ technique and, if you can, try and not extend your arms overhead completely.

Optional ‘Cash Out’: none
