took me 14.38, I just hit a sturdy pace from the get go and got through it pretty comfortably, anyone else have a crack or following? top athletes are in the low 10min mark, thats pretty well holding a 2 sec per snatch and 4 sec per burpee pace for the entire workout, anyone else have a crack or following?

A couple of guys at the gym were doing this the other day. I didn't realise that's what it was.
