Thruster @ 95#
Pull-up

Time: 4:59

Open gym today so I headed in at 8AM to work on Fran. I was trying to check off the sub-5 goal I had set for this year, and I managed to do it by 1 second! That’s still a full minute PR. My strategy going in was to do 12-9, 8-7, 9 for the thrusters. I managed to hit the mark except I had to go 5-4 for the last set of 9. For the pull-ups, I went 15-6, 5-5-5, 5-4. Really happy with the performance although I think I could realistically break 4:30 if I did it again before the year end.

Thrusters, 95# / 65#
Pull-ups

Time: 5:59

Big improvement over my previous time of 7:17 with a scaled weight of 75#. Still not totally happy. Should have broken 5:00. First, I had to break the pull-ups because I attempted to butterfly but I don’t quite have that down. For the thrusters, I went 11-10, 5-5-3-2, 5-4. The round of 15 crushed me. I need to do 8-7 on that round and not break any pull-ups. Next time!
