Coaching Tips: Get through the rope climbs as fast as possible and use a technique that prevents rope burn. The first set of power snatches should be challenging after the rope climbs, but you will ‘recover’ a bit for a big final set (or small sets with minimal rest). When you start the double unders, do not be surprised if you mess up a lot during the first few rounds – they will get easier as you recover from the rope climbs and snatches. That said, you should get ‘winded’ as the sets go on!
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 30s L sit, 100 single unders, 4 rounds, OR 3 sets of 12 narrow grip chin ups in a super set with 15 banded good mornings
