30, 25, 21...shoulders are more tired than they should be. I think I needed more expolsive power early. Found that I was being much more efficient the more tired I got. Good group this morning...how about that for a little Fran prep?

Scaled back to ease my shoulder back into things. Thanks to DB for the suggestion. I broke the thrusters into front squats and push presses. Worked FS and then PP.

FS: 30, 21, 21
PP: 10, 10, 10

It felt great to workout again. Hopefully it wasn't too much.

Had to make some adjustments based on lower back injury, but it feels great to be moving again.
-Used 2/ 35# DBs
-tried it barefoot and actually liked it.
shoulders and forearms were smoked. I didn't think it would be that bad until I did it. Man was I wrong!

27, 27, 25. Thanks to the AM Crew for all the encouragement.

Two things I learned. When moving the weight downward, REST IT across your body in the rack position...this allows your core to do most of the work and saves your arms/shoulders. Second, as mentioned this AM, use the power from your hips to get the weight overhead. Obviously, hips are a lot more powerful than arms/shoulders. Just like MAJ B said, I was much more efficient in the latter part of each round cause I had to focus on these two things.

Did this after our first Basketball game (History's 1-0).

Non-WOD note for data: Best APFT 2-mile time in easily five years (13:37) and did it in Vibram Five-Fingers after a month and a half of training for transition from sneakers to VFFs, not for speed. Interesting. Felt great, too.

Thanks to NM for the tip on the catch and resting the bar on the collarbone/front of shoulders during squat and thrust back up portion of the thruster. That gave me easily 25% more reps than I would have had otherwise, but a nice little barbell bruise in the process...
