Coaching Tips: Go hard on the row because you’ll get more ‘bang for your buck’ rowing for calories fast (as opposed to distance) and because of the 2-minute rest. Aim to finish the row in 1-1.5 minutes. Keep it strict on the push-ups and do not let the knees leave last. Make sure you squat under the snatches and avoid ‘pressing out’ to save the shoulders for later rounds. Use a more narrow grip on the power snatches so you don’t have to bend over as far.
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: none
