6.12.17 – 6.17.17

Monday: 6.12.17

“Quarter gone bad”
5 rounds for total reps:
0:15 Max thrusters 135/95 or 115/85, or 95/65 or 65/45
0:45 Rest

0:15 Max pull ups with 50# or 20# or bodyweight or band/feet assisted
0:45 Rest

0:15 Max burpees
0:45 Rest

Since there are only 15 seconds of work at a time, the goal here is to move efficiently at an all-out type of pace.  The modifications won’t be perfect today, but stick to one of the options listed for the sake of consistency.  Use a weight on the thrusters that allows you to perform each set unbroken.  Pick a pull up variation that allows 5-10 reps per set.

This is an OG workout from 2008 (hence the less than stellar production value on the demo video below) that reared its ugly head again recently.  This will be tough but do your best to maintain consistency as you get into the later rounds.

1x Segmented snatch deadlift (pause at mid-thigh) +
1x Snatch high pull +
1x Power snatch
In 10 minutes or less, build to a weight that you can handle for three consecutive sets with good form.  Focus on maintaining a flat back while driving through the legs to generate power.  Keep the bar close throughout the lift.
