- We are aiming to be finished by 7pm but may run a little bit over depending on how quickly we can get through all of the heats. 
- Every athlete performing this workout will have a judge keeping score and checking their range of motion while they go. 
- Come ready to cheer everyone else on, this is going to be a lot of fun!

- Some of the coaches performed the workout last night after it was announced and here are our tips for performing it:
1. Do not go to failure on the Toes-to-Bar early. You should be holding steady splits for your rounds up until minutes 6-7. Then start to push the pace with whatever you have left. 
2. As soon as you finish the first 9 minutes, start to load your bar for the first clean & jerk even while you’re tired. This gives you a chance to recover without wasting time. 
3. If you have a solid hook grip, hook grip for both the deadlifts and the snatches. 
4. Break up your toes-to-bar early, if you can only do 4 or 5 max, do sets of 2 from the start.
