*sub for rope climb is rope pulls from the floor times 3
*sub for weights will be based of the individual but we want you to add weight each round

Smaller athletes can shoot to get ahead early because things will get out of hand quickly after round 2. Be smart about how you choose to attack the run and front squats – will it pay off to run a little faster if you know you’ll need multiple sets to front squat anyway? Or do you ease off the gas just a little so you don’t have to pick the bar up again? Oh, and don’t forget to use your legs on those rope climbs
