Coaching Tips: Use an aggressive pace to finish the row, but do not go 100%. You will ‘catch your breath’ on the first round or two of the other movements. Avoid push pressing the dumbbells, and save the shoulders for later rounds. Rest on rep 4 of the power cleans, so you have enough ‘juice’ to get the bar up and over to the back squats. The goal is to finish the set of squats unbroken (for at least the first few rounds).
