Every Other Minute for 32 Minutes:
A) Thrusters 115/80: “Max” Reps in 30 Seconds
B) Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups: “Max” Reps in 30 Seconds
The goal is to work at a repeatable pace on both movements throughout and not redline at any point. The Thrusters should be one or 2 sets each round. Scale the load as needed. As we did last week, practice pausing the Thrusters overhead for a moment to help pace yourself and find good positions. Similar intention for the Pull-Ups, although skill may require you to perform a higher number of smaller sets per work interval, and even singles are okay here. Be mindful of your hands. Modify the Chest-to-Bar to Chin-over-Bar or Jumping Chest-to-Bar as needed. For example, if in a true max effort for 30 seconds of Thrusters (or Pull-Ups) you can perform 17 reps, slow down a bit and 12-13 as perfect as possible.
