Coaching Tips: Be sure to be thoroughly warmed up before starting, and practice the reps and the transitions. There isn’t enough time to ‘ease’ into it. Plan on hitting it hard from the beginning. These are regular grip deadlifts, but you may want to stop at 8 reps and change to a snatch grip for the last DL rep. Make sure you complete the deadlift before going into the hang power snatch (do not just snatch it from the floor). Do not let your breathing compromise the OHS. If you are gassed, rest before the last snatch so you can do the OHS safely.
Team Version: 10 full rounds, alternating with partner.
