Coaching Tips: Select a ‘pistol’ option that is challenging because of the small number of reps, but make sure each rep is legit. Try to do the power snatches unbroken for as many sets as possible. Consider using a narrower grip and using a bit of a ‘press out’. Break up the ring push-ups early because these get hard fast. Go fast on the double unders, but take your time on the bear crawls so that you can go right into the next round with minimal rest. Don’t go crazy with the chalk and leave hand prints all over the gym!
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 4 minute max cal row or airdyne/assault bike OR 3 sets of 15 db curls in a super set with 15 loaded hip extensions
