04222014 Ugly Thrusters

I hate thrusters...and I look horrible doing them. I can and will readily admit this is not my best of favorite movement.

Anyways here we go...

WARM UP
400m run
Stretch
2 Rounds of:
10 x squats
10 x jumping jacks
10 x push ups
10 x sit ups

SKILL

Max Squat Clean
*see that pic?  That is Jason Khalipa...you see how is positioned? Yeah....I can wish on a star or unicorns to get into that position...and it wont happen...YET.

I hit 165#....#1 - I may have been able to hit 175#.  BAD NEWS is since my mobility is such as it is I had to POWER CLEAN.  So yes it was and is a "cheat" in a loose way. A proper clean should be received in a squat position.  But yeah so I did not get it in a squat.

WOD
50 x Thrusters

Rx was 95#...I went down to L2 @ 65#
Here was horrible. I know I barely squatted.  I know they were ugly and probably alot of NO REPs per standards.  But I did my best and tried...oh yeah since I dont have a good front rack..whenever I have to do front squats and/or thrusters it is just ugly and bad.

400m Run

50 x Pull ups

30 x combination of Rx pull ups and jumping pull ups. I would do 10, 5, 5, 10, 5, 5 or something like that with Rx mixed in.
20 x box jumping pull ups to finish.

Final time - 13:41

Tough day with tough movements for me.

I am waiting for a overhead press day or deadlifts or even bench press...PLEASE!
