Thruster – get heavy
WOD “Team Regional Event 4”
40 Thrusters (75/55)
40 Burpees over bar
30 Burpees over bar
Murph on Saturday and then a peaceful few days off has us ready to hit our fitness head on. We continue our Regionals week with Event 4 and go hard and fast with thrusters and burpees. But first .. we pay the man with heavy thrusters. Work up to a working weight (see a week back at what you did for our 3s to 1 reps for a target). We have been working this very efficient strength position and lets go for big weight today. Focus on a strong hip drip with the core fully engaged. The barbel should pop off your shoulders with the momentum vs it being a full on press.
40 light weight thrusters, but at a rep scheme that is going to build muscle fatigue. Mentally accept that and just hang on. If you need to break it up, PLACE the bar down to avoid a bouncing betty barbell – this is required for RX. Nobody needs a barbell bouncing during burpees.
Burpees are over the bar – two feet back two foot jump please. Try swiveling your body in the air and you’ll shave of 2 seconds a burpee.
This is one round 40 thrusters, 40 burpees and then 30 thrusters 30 burpees – same weight.
