EFFICIENCY TIPS

-Athletes should complete the rounds of 25 and 20 at a controlled pace. Possibly taking a strategic and quick break during the Power Snatches.

-Athletes should Row at a pace that allows them to hold onto big sets of Power Snatches.

-Some athletes might want to “break/rest” with the barbell overhead to catch their breath as opposed to breaking with the barbell on the floor.
