Coaching Tips: Make sure you are good and warmed up for this one so you can hit it hard from the very beginning. Go for as big of sets as possible since this is a short burner. Squat cleaning the first rep counts as a squat rep so use that technique if you are comfortable with it. Don’t waste time between the two movements and don’t take a long break on the jump ropes when you just trip up (and you aren’t tired). Get right back onto the next set!
