Heavy Thrusters

The prescribed thrusters in Monday’s workout are heavy, but they’re also in bite size sets.  This is an opportunity to try a weight that may seem intimidating, or even go above and beyond, with a movement few count as their favorite.  Go heavy, and do your best to hang onto the bar.  I mean, it’s only jump rope between you and your next set.  It’s not like it’s burpees, pull-ups, or anything like that, right?JM_CrossFit_20130701_6961-L

    Front Squat: 160# Helpful tip from Coach Marylene to keep the shoulders up in addition to the elbows.
    WOD: 8:52 @ 75# and singles. Felt guilty for not trying heavier after Eric’s exhortation, but thrusters are so hard!

    Hope to see everybody tomorrow morning at 10.

    FS – 295# (315# x 1)
    WOD – 6:06 Rx – Both the thrusters and double unders felt wrong from start to finish and then my jump rope broke half way through. Thanks to Sam for lending me his.

    Nice work 5PM. Happy Holidays!!!
