Compare to: May 12, 2016
Coaching Tips: More than half of the reps are in the 10s and 8s rounds, so watch your pace on these. It will be best if you truly snatch the hang power snatches and avoid pressing out.  Pressing the snatches will make your shoulders blow up faster!  Similarly, use as little arm press, as possible, for the push jerks.  On the 6-4-2 rounds, hustle through the transitions and don’t waste time. Rest in the middle of the sets (vs. between movements.)
