Coaching Tips: If you start off with a scaled down weight or modified toes to bar plan on doing 5 rounds, it is better to do less volume quickly then slowly grid through more rounds. Keep the shoulder ‘packed’ tight in the socket during the single armed kettlebell swings and focus on engaging the whole trunk.  Change sides ‘mid-flight’ to save time if you can. Be careful with big sets of toes to bar (don’t risk tearing your hands). Performing a big kip will help shorten the distance between the feet and the bar.  If you struggle with double unders, come in early and spend extra time going over them before the class. The more you practice them outside of ‘workouts’, the better you’ll get at them!
