Coaching Tips: Most people will be limited by the snatches and overhead squats. If mobility is the main factor holding you back, do hang power cleans and front squats (at a heavier load). Pace the first round on the barbell so that you can fly on the burpees. The second round will be much more challenging than the first. Make sure you break it up so that you maintain good form!
