Thruster?! I Barely Knew Her!

Many of you are familiar with the multi-joint, multi-muscle, front-squat-push-press hybrid, mutant of a movement that is the thruster, and know how it can crush an athlete in a workout.  We can combat the suck that is the thruster though, with practice.  Tomorrow we’re going to work the thruster as a strength move.  Going heavier than usual for a few reps in order to hopefully make the lighter metcon weights seem slightly easier.
