Coaching Tips: Pace the power cleans and the thrusters on the first round so you can go faster on the 15s and the 9s. Drop the bar often on the cleans, but don’t let your form slip when you bend over to pick it back up for the next set. Keep the bar under control when you lower it down on the thruster. Do not let it drop from full extension overhead to the bottom of the squat unless you have a much heaver thruster max (1.5-2x as heavy approximately). Alternate resting between taking a few breaths with the bar on the shoulders, and dropping the bar to minimize extra cleans getting into position. Paced correctly, the 9s should be 1-2 sets for each movement.
