Coaching Tips: Bar starts on the ground (always unless otherwise stated), keep the chest up and do these as ‘high bar’ so that your lower back doesn’t blow up. Do big sets of chest to bar on the first round, but break them up often later on to avoid possible hand tears. Remember that c2b is more about the legs and hips popping up than about the arm pull. Alternate hands as desired on the hang snatches, but consider switching often to save the grip on later rounds. Move fast on the running part of the bootlegger burpees because of the minute rest!
