One partner will complete 5 burpees and perform max rep thrusters on the minute (135/95#/pretty darn heavy). After one minute, rotate with your partner who will complete 5 burpees then max rep thrusters as able during that minute. At the beginning of the next minute switch with your partner and continue to perform 5 burpees and then max rep thrusters and so on until you reach 200 total thrusters.

We can’t wait to see many of you this week at this year’s fun outdoor bodyweight version!
What is the Hopper event anyway?
It’s an annual event when we all gather together to enjoy an awesome workout, and spend some quality time with our gym family and CrossFit community. It’s special because the workout is randomly drawn at the event, which is a big part of the fun!
Top Five Reasons to join in the fun:
5. You’ll get your fitness in for the day!
4. There’s gonna be food after.
3. We all know CrossFit teaches us how to prepare for the unexpected, be ready for anything, and that we can always do more than we expect. So come prove it!
2. You know that exercise you hate? It’s gonna get drawn just because you hate it. And you hating it means you should be doing it more. You know it’s true. So come do it!
1. There’s gonna be food after.
For some of us, rest is the hardest workout of all.
We don’t want to stop. Put our feet up? Are you nuts? There’s so much to do, so much to accomplish, so much to be, that we just keep charging hard all the time . . . right up to the point that we hit the wall and explode.
The CrossFit universe is packed with “Type-A” personalities; for folks like us, nothing is ever hard enough, fast enough, strong enough. We like intensity, crave it, inject it like a drug into our veins. We’re adrenaline junkies, but with nice muscles and good teeth.
So when someone tells us to rest, or relax, or recover, we quite simply don’t know what to do.
Why shouldn’t we WOD 10 days in a row? Why shouldn’t we go 100% in every workout all the time? Why can’t we test 1RM every week in our favorite lifts? What do you mean “3 days on, 1 off?” Isn’t that for sissies?
Yet, somewhere in our racing brains, we know that rest is critical to our improvement; that we grow during recovery, not during the actual test of our strength. And we know that we should take that rest day, get those extra hours of sleep, relax a bit more. “Sleep is the best supplement.”
We’ve been camping quite a bit on weekends. It’s forcing me to unplug, recharge, and gear up for the week ahead. It’s not easy though.
But if I can do this, so can you. What are you going to do to relax and recover this week or next? How about the one after? And can you make it part of your regular routine? “Rest” as the WOD; it’s got four letters but it’s not a dirty word. Put your feet up now and then. It’s actually going to help make you stronger.
