Coaching Tips: Get through the first round of clean and jerks quickly, but plan on pacing later rounds so that you protect your back. Really emphasize the legs on the jerks so that you can save your shoulders for the push-ups.  Keep the push-ups legit – no worming or rocking. Push the pace on the runs because of the minute rest that follows. If needed, adjust the load during the rest intervals if needed!

Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: none
