Coaching Tips: Hustle on the first few rounds because of the fast transitions; go for bigger sets and don’t waste time between movements. Before things get difficult, start breaking up sets in the middle. For most people it will make sense to start breaking up the cleans into two sets so you can finish the cleans and go right into the thrusters for one big set. Break up the chest to bars to save your grip for the cleans. Make sure you use the hook grip to save your hands and to prevent rips!
