Break the first set up into smaller sets since your legs will be tired from the row. When you set yourself up for the jumping pull ups your head should be one to two fists below the bar, use boxes and bumper plates to adjust your height. Your chest needs to touch and your arms need to get fully extended each rep. You will use your legs much more than you think. Be careful not to step off the bumper plate or box and hurt your ankle.

Compare to: February 08, 2016 Coaching Tips: Try to hit the toes-to-bar in big sets. Make sure you maintain good knee discipline on the lunges (keep it over the ankle), and try to 'spread' the floor with your feet. Push to the front and back, not just up. Do not push off of you knee with your hands. Watch the hyperextension of the lumbar on the American kettlebell swings; keep the back flat, and abs tight - especially with the toes-to-bar making them tired.
