CrossFit WOD, but no Olympic Lifting for 7/22/2015

For our strength program this week, we move into sets of 3 for our Thrusters and Power Snatches.  We did thrusters second last week, so it is the first heavy lift for this week.  As the thruster weight increases, it is increasingly important to recruit your legs as the primary muscle groups needed to drive the bar overhead.  Chances are, you will not be able to shoulder press the weight you are able to thruster 3 times.  Therefore, if you are not driving hard with the legs, and relying too much on you shoulder strength, you will likely miss the lift.
