Scaling Guide: 19 - 26 minutes, about 8.5 min per round. Scale Up: Legless Rope Climbs, 125/185lb Jerks, 35/53lb KB Hang Power Snatches instead of swings

TEAM VERSION: With a partner. 4/6 Rope Climbs per team, 10 Jerks (both one person at a time). 40 KB Swings both partners working at the same time. Both partners Run 800m together.

Coaching Tips: Make sure you use your legs as much as possible on the rope climbs to save your grip, and stand tall to stretch out your whole length for each 'pull'. Take your time on the jerks and keep the form tight. The KB swings are Russian height. Push hard on the runs because of the extended rest.

Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: None.
