Touch and Go repetitions

You cannot put the bar on the floor or a rack and all reps must be touch and go.

You may rest the bar in the front rack or the hip crease. Not the back rack

Maintain proper lumbar curve and range of motion on the lifts to secure the best and most efficient score.

This is a very mental workout and you will probably start at a load much lower than anticipated.

The challenging part is the shoulder to overhead after the thrusters, once you pass these it becomes about holding on and pushing through to the finish.
