Coaching Tips: Consider dropping the bar often due to the volume of cleans. Singles will be a good strategy for many. That said, do not waste time between sets and reps! Get right on to the next rep. Keep the low back flat, this combination has the potential to trash people’s backs if they aren’t thinking about it. Make sure you finish the clean at the top with elbows in front of the bar. For the burpees, a two-footed jump is required for it to be considered ‘Performance’ (as usual). Do not hyper extend the lumbar as you come up out of the burpee (another way to mess your back up)!
Optional ‘Cash Out’: 60s plank, 30 cal row, 3 rounds.
