Find something to thrust-er

This rep scheme works its way back up from the 9, to 21 again. Way more fun! This means you need to approach it differently than a traditional 21-15-9. Move smooth & steady through the burpees – don’t stop moving for all these sets. After the burpees, take a few deep breaths before starting thrusters. Weight should be light enough to do 21 unbroken, but heavy enough to be uncomfortable. Break the Thrusters into no more than 2 sets, if legs are too fatigued. Stay consistent with movement & pace throughout the workout.
OBJECT: Barbell, Dumbbells, or Kettlebells (if available) for the thrusters — or non- conventional equipment: a sandbag, loaded backpack, 2 Water jugs (or anything with handles). Get creative!

    Thrusters with an object

    Used a workout band as I couldn’t find a good object to use. Started with a band is supposed to be around 20lbs but had to drop down to a lighter band for the last half so I wouldn’t have to breakup the thrusters more than once.

    Thanks Kevin.

    Thruster with set of 30# dbs

    That was rough. Had to break for mom duty during last group of 21 burpee/thrusters. Time likely would have been bit slower. Although starting up again equally sucked 🙂

    It’s amazing how much it helps your performance when someone is yelling at you.
    oops, I meant coaching, not yelling 😉

    Thanks Kevin!
