Coaching Tips: Take your time on the box jumps to avoid any ‘misses’. Use an efficient jerk early on to make sure your shoulders are fresh for the wall balls. Pace the wall balls on the first two rounds so that you can go right into the box jumps on the next round, but go ‘big’ on the last set to get a good score.
