    259 rx. My takeaways:

    1. Have a plan to stay ahead of the clock (time out what will work for you) and stick to it! 4 minutes goes by faster than you think.

    2. Toes to bar disappear fast. When you start to break, stay close to the bar and keep your rest very short.

    3. Limit transition times as much as possible. Every second is going to count when you’re on the cusp of making it into the next round.

    4. Double unders should be recovery.

    5. Don’t pace the cleans in the lighter rounds. Drop the bar each rep to save your grip but follow it down and keep moving. You’re going to need the extra time when it gets heavy.

    6. Lungs! Ouch. Felt like Grace. But 4 times as long.

    7. You can definitely clean 90% of your max for multiple reps if you focus and keep breathing.

    Good luck, everybody!
