You have to practice Toes-to-Bar as if you’re able to get your toes all the way to the bar, even if you can’t. Move with intention. Because at some point the strength/power will be there and it will happen.
Land with control. The sound the feet make on the box should be firm but soft. No squeaking soles. That means you’re just barely making it and/or out of control.
Turning the KB over during Goblet Squats is just more ergonomical. Even smaller athletes can support and control more weight this way.
I gave a few of our guys/girls a shot at the Primal Sprint Tri today at the end of the workout. It’s a crushing combination and never gets easier. As your fitness improves you simply go faster. There’s no way around the pain. So suck it up and just do it.
Some athletes chose to do ring dips instead of stationary dips today. Make sure the shoulders contact the rings in the bottom position and that the elbows lockout fully at the top. If you can do that then ring dips are appropriate.

It’s nice to have someone in your hear during the Sprint Tri. There are moments during the workout where thoughts can invariably sour. Positive encouragement always helps.
