"Thruster? I damn near killed 'er!" Har har har har har... ;) Oh such fun with innuendos in CF. Didn't I write a blog about that? Hmmm... if not, I should. :O)
So, our Monday night workout was a pretty good strength workout. We were working on max thrusters. You know, I've never actually hit a max thruster workout, so this was interesting for me. My hip function and my speed off the bottom have been something that I've been working on for awhile. So, this was an interesting test for me. I knew after doing that heavy Fran back in September that I could put up 90, but I wasn't sure how much higher I could go without losing the thruster and finishing with a press. Andrea was looking for a wave of contraction because, well that's what a true thruster is. Sooo... my weights looked like this.
I did 95 twice just because it felt like I lost that solid movement that Andrea was looking for. So, I just hit a repeat. I think that I could have gone higher than 105, but I wasn't feeling it, and I was starting to lose the integrity of the movement. So I dropped down and just worked on hitting it for the speed off the bottom. I think that was a good choice for me. So, all in all, not too shabby.
