I know it’s late but I wanted to get my post up about 13.4.  I did the dry run tonight and had a couple thoughts:

1.  Pace the toes to bars!  If you get to failure you’re in trouble.  I did all mine in sets of 3 after the round of 6.  However, I stayed right under the pullup bar and did not walk away.  I also put bumper plates next to my feet so I didn’t waste any time jumping up and setting my grip.

2.  Clean and Jerk a little faster than you think you should.  Get back on the bar fast or stay on the bar, they’re not that bad.

3.  If you do get to failure on the toes to bars then you can reverse your grip (palm facing you) and you’ll be able to rep out a few more.

Have fun, I can’t wait to do this one with you!  Unlike last week I don’t see this one making you sore.
