– Overview: Athletes will be challenged to hold onto the barbell for bigger sets today with the loading being on the lighter side. The shoulders will feel fatigued the most as both movements require an upper body press.

– Thrusters: Loading should not exceed 55% of your 1rm thruster. Athletes can squat clean the first rep if they would like.

– Bar-Facing Burpees: A two foot take off is not required but athletes must jump over the bar. Athlete should be able to complete 10+ burpees in 1 minute to complete reps as prescribed.

– Score: Total Time


– Let’s try to hold on for some bigger sets of thrusters today. We can aim for 1-2 sets in the first round, 1-2 sets in the second round, and 1-3 sets in the last round.

– Use the burpees as your pacer. We can move at a speed that allows us to stick to our strategy on the barbell.
