Looking at the four movements, we can almost separate them into two categories. The dumbbell snatches and the burpees are lower skill movements when compared to the other two, but have higher rep schemes. There are as many toes to bar and handstand push-ups as there are dumbbell snatches, but these movements present a greater skill challenge, especially following 90 repetitions. If the last two movements present athletes with a big challenge, they can approach the first two with more control. This doesn’t mean going slow, rather holding a consistent pace that better allows them to thrive when things start to get hard. If athletes make it back to the dumbbell snatches and/or the burpees in round two, every rep counts. Whereas the first round was about making sure the higher skill movement would still be there, the second round on the snatches and burpees is all about effort, knowing that it is unlikely they get back to those final two movements.
