WOD

6 Rounds for Time
50 Double Unders
5 Thrusters 135/95lbs

Workout notes: Two very difficult movements in today’s workout!  The double under is always troublesome if you don’t have the skill nailed yet. Unfortunately the only way to learn the skill is by making many attempts and failing many times.  Start by working on a rep scheme that will get you working towards learning the movement. If you are stuck and well into the workout switch to single unders if you are making no progress.  The thruster is essentially the furthest you could move a bar from the bottom of a squat in one motion.  That makes every pound you add to the bar seem to multiply exponentially.  Challenge yourself by going a little heavier than what you would normally use in a workout like “Fran” but go with a weight you can do a set of 5 fresh.
