Thursday – Tower of Power Thruster Style

For quite some time Thursdays were dedicated to heavy lifting hence the moniker "Big Man Night". Well today's workout may seem geared towards the larger athlete but there is an element of strategy involved as well. Technique: Coach's choice Workout: Tower of Power - Thruster Style You have 1 minute to perform thrusters at each weight (see below), followed by a 2 minute rest. Points are awarded for each rep as follows: Ladies 45lbs/Gents 65lbs - 1 point per thruster Ladies 65lbs/Gents 95lbs - 2 points per thruster Ladies 85lbs/Gents 135lbs - 3 points per thruster Ladies 105lbs/Gents 155lbs - 4 points per thruster Ladies 85lbs/Gents 135lbs - 3 points per thruster Ladies 65lbs/Gents 95lbs - 2 points per thruster Ladies 45lbs/Gents 65lbs - 1 point per thruster Your score is your total number of points. Now here is where strategy comes into play. Do you go full out trying to score as many small points as possible or do you leave something in the tank for the heavy weight and go for the big points? May the best strategist win! Since it is the Superbowl this weekend I thought I would share one of favourite commercials.
