The Barbell Thruster is one of the best total body lifts, epitomizing the "core-to-extremity" principle. Descend into a deep front squat where the core muscles of your body propel the barbell upward, and the extremities (your arms) finish it off.

Barbell Thruster 3rm

On the minute for 20:00 perform:
- 3 Burpees
- Max reps Barbell Thrusters (95/65)

WOD Tips:
For the SWOD, we last maxed out our 1rm Thrusters on 2.24.10 and 5.18.10. Hopefully you recorded those efforts and can use them as a gauge for your 3rm efforts today. Only go up in weight as long as you are able to descend into front squat with proper depth, and without losing your lumbar curve.

For the metcon, you will perform 3 burpees at the top of every minute. The burpees will be full burpees: squat, kick the legs back, push up, jump your feet back to squat position, and finish with a max effort jump. You will spend the rest of the minute performing as many reps of barbell thrusters as you can until the next minute, when you will do burpees again. The object of this WOD is to reach 100 thrusters. The WOD ends at 100 thrusters or 20:00, whichever comes first. For the thrusters, you have to be able to clean the barbell into position each round, so use that to guide what weight you complete this WOD with.
