Coaching Tips: This is a great workout to experiment with using a higher box (than what you might use in a longer metcon.) DO NOT ‘rebound’ the box jumps! (This is dangerous for your Achilles.) The squat snatches can be power snatch to an overhead squat if you wish. Either way, make sure you are going below parallel. If the overhead squat is your nemesis, go lighter on this part and then add weight for the clean and jerks.
Optional ‘Cash Out’:  100m farmer carry, 20 wall ball, 5 minutes
