Coaching tips: Go in with a plan on how you want to break up the KB swings and pull ups and then try and hold on. Don’t go unbroken on the early rounds unless you know you can do this in under 9 minutes. This is a grip killer so don’t double kip your pull ups once they go away, do fast singles if needed.

Optional ‘Cash Out’: None.
