Skill

EMOM for 10 Minutes
3 Thrusters

This skill work is a warm up for our metcon and also technique review for a unique and difficult movement.  The thruster is a combination of a front squat and push press.  For most athletes the difficulty will come in incorporating the push press after the front squat.  Pop the hips open at the tail end of the squat to drive the barbell upward. Work at a moderate weight across all 10 rounds or increase slowly after you have mastered the technique.

WOD

With a clock set for 12 Minutes

1 Minutes of burpees to a plate 45/25 lb
1 Minutes of wall ball shots 20/14 lb
2 Minutes of burpees to a plate 45/25 lb
2 Minutes of wall ball shots 20/14 lb
3 Minutes of burpees to a plate 45/25 lb
3 Minutes of wall ball shots 20/14 lb

Workout notes: Today’s workout is a 12 minute time priority workout in a format that may be familiar to you. Your score will be your total number of reps across all 12 minutes. We start with a minute on each movement and add a minute until 12 minutes are up and you have completed 6 minutes with each movement.  Plate burpees are performed by hitting the deck in front of your weight plate and then standing tall on the top of your plate with open hips to complete the rep. The wall ball shot can be tough as you become fatigued! Remember to maintain quality movement and perform the squat to your full range of motion in each round! If classes are large pair up and start at different stations.
