Strength is a superset of push presses and rope climbs. Choose a weight that is fairly heavy for 5 push presses and stay at that weight across 5 sets. In between, do 1-3 rope climbs depending on your proficiency. Remember to use your legs to stand up on the rope rather than use your arms to pull yourself up. It makes a huge difference!
The metcon is a familiar format: 1 minute to get 5 power snatches done and then as many burpees as possible in the remaining time. Then rest 1 minute. Do this for 5 rounds and your score is the total amount of burpees completed. Hand release burpees simply means you lift your hands off the floor slightly at the bottom of the burpee!
