Coaching Tips: Break the pull-ups up early and often if you feel like hand tearing may be an issue for you. Fast singles can still get you a great ‘as prescribed’ time on this if you keep on it. That said, today is a day to practice mental toughness. Try and push yourself to do as many rounds as possible ‘unbroken’ or in as few sets as possible. Then, don’t leave anything left for the row. Really sell out on the last round of box jumps, and test your metal with the final row.
