SHOULDER PRESS TEST
WOD – “Granite Games – Thruster Run – 2.0”
18 Thrusters (95/65) (135/95)
Hoping everyone is recovered from that big WOD yesterday, that got sneaky hard very quickly! Today we begin by testing out our shoulder press one rep max. We have been building up and developing this movement. Time to get as heavy as possible. As you are progressing up in weight .. mind the jumps, and if you fail .. do a drop set with a bit less and then see if you can go back up. Too often we finish after missing a lift with a 10lb jump … get the change plates out and let’s see where we are today!
The WOD is the same Joey and Anna’s team will be hitting during the Granite Games this week. It is a burner and meant to be full tilt fire. Go ahead and take a few minutes to get your WOD weight, and then we go. The run is fast and the thrusters faster.
The first round of thrusters is to be done unbroken – when we return from the run, aim for 2 sets, and then try to hold that through the 9s. After that, go for unbroken. Pull that bar down and press up – don’t wait for gravity.
If you cannot run due to an injury, today you Assault Bike as a scale, 18/12.
