Coaching Tips: Break up the chin ups early on because that is where most people will start failing. Get through the double unders and dumbbells hang squat cleans as fast as possible. Make sure that you are using as little arm as possible on the cleans otherwise you will pay the price with shoulders that don’t work for double unders and biceps that don’t work for the pull ups! Remember to use the hips to get those dumbbells up!
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 16 DB suitcase lunge steps, 10 burpees, 4 minutes OR 3 sets of 12 DB shoulder press in a superset with 12 single leg DB deadlifts
