EFFICIENCY TIPS

-Athletes can push the first 200 Meters of their Run and coast the second strategically to be able to start Push Jerks as soon as they return

-Athletes should try to hold on unbroken on Push Jerks. To avoid cleaning the barbell extra, athletes should try to rest overhead or in the front rack.

-Athletes should find a consistent and steady pace on the Box Jump Overs knowing they will be pushing on the first 200 Meters of their Run.
