**Scaling:**

Try to relax on the double-unders. If needed, build in planned breaks on the sets of 50 and 40 double-unders to prevent shoulder fatigue and moderate your heart rate. If you get caught tripping up, take a second to relax and reset. For the toes-to-bars, pick a number you can repeat under fatigue with a quick break. The snatches should be a weight you can touch and go all 3 reps, but we recommend singles. This should be a weight you can power snatch. Focus on smooth, efficient reps, then get right back to your jump rope.

Once you finish the workout, don't rush to add weight to the barbell. Take a few deep breaths to recover and bring your heart rate down as you start building. Focus on perfect form for each rep and a big leg drive since you will be fatigued from the prior work. The goal is to finish the first part in 10 minutes to give you at least 5 minutes to hit a few lifts building in weight.

**Coaching cues:**
In the double-under, flick the wrist down toward the ground on each jump. If you bring the wrist up while you jump up, you make the rope shorter and there is a greater chance of missing the rep. You jump up while the wrist and arms go down.
