7 rounds (15 minute cap)
7 Thrusters (40kgs, 25kgs)
Today felt like a day for new things. We practiced the hook grip on all the lifts, which in theory can let you add 5% more weight. It hurts your fingers more than the additional weight though, but what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger right? According to Phillip, you can’t lift anywhere near your normal deadlift vs using a snatch grip deadlift. So looking at the numbers, that means our old 1RM of deadlifts are now out the window and we could theoretically go heavier. I am quite curious regarding this and would like to test myself out with this lift. Hopefully we can see how we’ve progressed so far.
I have mix feelings about the WOD. I initially had 45kgs on the bar but had to bring it back down to 40kgs after 3 rounds as it was getting too heavy to do the prescribed amount of reps without sacrificing good form. The burpees were getting harder as the rounds piled on. At the end of 15 minute cap, both Socs and I finished 6 rounds even.
