Compare to: February 19, 2015 Coaching Tips: Use singles or small sets on the power cleans if your grip is an issue on toes to bar (one of the primary reasons people tear is that their hands are weak). Small sets does not mean go slow on them though. Pace the toes-to-bar to be where you get your recovery back. Singles on a lower bar that doesn’t need to be jumped to can keep you moving and takes about the same time as breaking it up 2 or more times. Make up time on the wall balls by going unbroken or in as few sets as possible. Practice utilizing the hand / wrist ‘flip’ at the top of the throw. It will get the ball much higher with less energy output. Optional ‘Cash Out’: Do an extra 5 min of the metcon.
