Thruster Thursday

Getting back to my early wake-ups after managing to sleep in later for a couple of weeks. So had enough time to go through my morning routine and get to CFi early to get in heavy thrusters before the 9am class.


  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • Thrusters
    • 5×45#
    • 5×95#

Thruster Attack

Every 1:30 for 9:00 (6 sets)

  • 8×135#

Not too bad. Got me breathing pretty hard. Maybe too much rest. Will make adjustments to the plan for upcoming weeks.

Warm-up #2

  • 2 Rounds
    • 4 Inch Worms
    • 10 Good Mornings (45#)
  • Deadlifts
    • 5×155#
    • 5×245#
    • 3×315#


EMOM 8:00

  • 2 Deadlifts (365#)


4 Rounds NFT

  • 4 MU
  • 5 Strict Ring Dips (right after MU)

Nice burn and got me out of breath. Have started to get the hang of pushing away from the rings at the top after finishing the muscle-up, instead of lowing back to the bottom of the dip and then falling. It’s definitely a different cycling into the next rep.


15:00 AMRAP

  • 10 Deadlifts (185#)
  • 10 Burpees
  • 250m Run

I got through 5 full rounds plus 10 deadlifts and 10 burpees at 14:44 on the clock. No sense starting a run. All deadlifts and burpees were unbroken.

Walked 200m to cool down a little.

Afternoon intervals on the SkiErg! Warmed up with an easy 500m in 2:23.6. I think this interval workout may have come from Athlete Cell, but I don’t remember where I saved it from.

6 Rounds

  • 20s @ 100%
  • 40s @ 50%

Rest 3:00

4 Rounds

  • 30s @ 100%
  • 1:00 @ 50%

Rest 3min

2 Rounds

  • 45s @ 100%
  • 1:30 @ 50%

I went about 1,285m, 1,280m, and 950m in each of the blocks. Was able to get down in the low 1:30s during some of the short ones. Stayed under 1:40 almost the entire time when going 100%. Went at about a 3:00/500m pace for my 50% efforts.
