This event begins with the athlete on the starting mat. At the sound of the beep, the athlete will move forward to the first barbell and perform 10 snatches (advancing every 5 reps). The same barbell will then be used for 12 over-the-bar burpees (advancing every 6 reps). After 2 rounds are complete, the athlete will move to the second, lighter barbell and perform rounds 3 and 4 in the same fashion. Once the the final burpee is complete, the athlete will move to the finish mat.
Reduce the load and volume to keep this a sprint. The weight should be challenging but light enough to string reps together without dropping the bar. Reduce the number of burpees so that you can maintain a fast pace.
