Coaching Tips: For the chest to bars, be sure to focus on the legs and the hips to get you up. The better the kip, the easier the pull up. Be ready to drop to small sets if needed to save the hands and grip for later rounds. Aim to complete the front squats without putting the bar down. If you need to rest, try to rest at the top with the bar racked. Don’t move slow on the bear crawls. Move quickly and drop to a knee if you need to rest. The longer you are in the ‘up’ position, the more work you are doing!

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 10 push-ups, 15 Russian Kb swings, 4 minutes
