No news, no new regrets

100 Thrusters @ 25 kg
Rest as much as you like, but if the bar touches the ground you run 400m

14:05, including one 400m run.


Not as God-awful as I expected, but certainly not easy. At rep 75 the bar felt heavy enough that going for a run seemed like a good idea. Turns out it was a bad idea. I wanted to run again at 85 but thought much better of it.

FWIW, this was prescribed at 50% of 1RM Thruster weight, which should have made it 30kg for me. I’m pretty happy with how I did with 25 kg considering how little heavy work I’ve done lately. 30 would have been very tough, and at 100 reps, 25 was probably too heavy for the pace the designers intended for it. Would also be “fun’ with just a broomstick.

Rest days this week have all included the straight commute, but on the MTB as I burned out my back tyre on the trainer during the LTHR test.
