Coaching Tips: Crank through the first few rounds at a good clip, but then settle into a pace you can maintain for the next 15 or so minutes. Be as efficient as possible on the toes to bar and db hang clean and jerks to save energy for later rounds. Push the pace on the row because the faster you go, the less distance you’ll have to go on the rower. Avoid using your biceps on the rower by keeping your row form (this will save them, and your grip, for the other movements). Use a hook grip on the hang cleans if you can to save the grip for later.
