Today’s workout is a descending rep scheme of two weightlifting movements and it should look and feel similar to Open workout 15.5. If you have completed the Open workout in the past, try to recall your experience.
Base your loading off of the thruster. The barbell load should be light and allow you to perform 10+ unbroken reps in the warm-up. You should use the same weight for both movements.
If you are unsure about the loading, go a little lighter and move faster. This will get you where you want to be.
After the workout, we will have some fun testing our ability to hang on to a KB in a variety of positions.
