Thrusters are the devil

Warmup: ME, movement drills with a dowell ... not too much else ... waiting around for heat #1 to finish.

Five rounds for time of:
95* pound Sumo deadlift high-pull, 15 reps
95* pound Thruster, 15 reps
*Subbed 45#


I forgot to bring my watch to class so i do not have the splits for this. Which I find totally aggravating.

The SDHP were not a problem. I was generally able to do them in 1 set of 10-12 and then finish out the rest.

The thrusters - well - they're thrusters - they suck. I was able to do them in sets of 3-5 ... which means I probably should have used a slightly heavier weight - except that my time doesn't really indicate that it was too easy. My wrist(s) were really feeling worked by this workout, so I was taking a little extra rest between sets to try to let them ... I dunno - rest. I don't know why my wrists were so unhappy this week, and were just fine last week with a very similar workout. Probably due to using a different bar, and maybe a different grip. last week i used an empty oly bar. this week it was the15# alumalite with 15# bumpers.

Daniel said my form on the thrusters wasn't looking too bad. My depth was excellent, and my knees - while wobbly - were not in danger of actually knocking together. We'll see how squats go tonight.
