Coaching Tips: Go in big sets from the beginning on this one (unbroken as long as possible).  Then start breaking in the middle of the sets but avoid resting between movements.  Hustle to the next movement and get some reps done before pausing.  For example, break in the middle of the set of squats, get chalk, then finish and go right into the pull ups (don’t finish the squats, get chalk, then start the pull-ups).  And don’t overdo the chalk and leave handprints everywhere!  You should also have a plan for counting rounds, this one is easy to lose count on.

Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: none
