Coaching Tips: The snatches should be pretty ‘heavy’, so plan on only being able to do the first round unbroken. Push the pace on the sit ups and the runs to keep the intensity up, but slow down on the snatches to maintain form. The sit ups can be regular or ‘butterfly’. In the later rounds, be aware of the low back. After all of the sit ups, your abs may have a harder time helping you keep your back flat on the snatches.
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 10 burpees, 30 double unders, 4 rounds. OR 3 sets of 15 banded tricep pushdown in a superset with 15 banded good mornings
