Scaling Guide: 6 – 14 minutes, about 2 minutes per round. Scale up: 5 rounds for time.
Coaching Tips: Keep the thumbs under the plate so you don’t accidentally drop it on your head. Lock the arms out so you don’t fatigue the shoulders more than necessary. Use a lot of kips to get through the ring dips as fast as possible (don’t grind out strict ones). Squat clean the first thruster if you can, and make sure your elbows are out in front so you don’t risk hitting them on your knees!
