We our second strength movement for the month today. Thrusters are an explosive movement in which you hold the bar in the front rack position, take a big front squat, and explosively drive out of the front squat pressing the bar over your head once your hips reach full extension. Hated by many, thrusters are a full body movement that keeps you under weight while you are exhausted.
For the new few weeks, we will be adding a different element to lifting a heavy thruster, a Tempo. The tempo of this lift will be 3,0,x,1. That is short for 3 second descending into the squat, no pause at the bottom of the squat, an explosion out of the bottom, and a 1 second pause with the bar locked out overhead. Those watching, make sure you count that 3 second descent.
Be sure to record your highest weight lifted today. We will use that weight again soon.
