For weight.

Thruster

5 x 3 x 3 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1.

Try and increase weight on each round through the sets of 2 in an effort to reach and maintain your 1 rep max on the last four rounds.

Post loads to comments.

A lot of the thrusters ended with a push-jerk like hip drive and dip. The weight still got up overhead.

Chris--I don't think anyone will argue that you were well within the intent of that exercise. Good work.

Here's mine, I hate posting after CV.

Yesterday there was a question about Kettle bell swings and how high they should go. Here is the short answer. With a KBS you need to open all the way up with your hips and use your core to swing the KB. With a good drive you should be able to get the KB above eye level. I generally do not go overhead for safety reasons but I do try and get my arms beyond a 45 degree angle upward. If you have more questions ask me one morning and we'll work through it.

Good work again today. See you all tomorrow for CrossFit Friday.

Was probably doing too much of a shoulder press and not enough hip thrust but my shoulders are still smoked.

Still learning the ropes and keeping my weights low till I get more comfortable, realized I need to pay better attention to the details of the workout (increasing weight ever round--NOT sets).

Was able to get out of the barracks before the 4th Regiment wealth and warfare inspection. Liked the work out agree with Dana i was using mostly shoulders during the press.

Overall weak effort on my part today. Form on shoulder press needs improvement.

Went with Dan on this one. Had to leave before the last two so I could get back for formation.

My form sucked but still got the weight up. I agree that it felt like a push-jerk, probably to much weight.
