Video courtesy of CrossFit HQ. Today is about learning to move heavier weight in what of our foundational movements, the Thruster!  The heavier you go, really focus on getting that leg drive to get the barbell moving out of that squat.  More hips and legs you use, less the arms will have to do at the end of each rep.  The dubs and box jump between sets are just to keep the hips fully fired up and ready to go for the next heavy set. You can either clean the bar from the ground or go out of the rack today.

Scaling Options:

Dubs -> 100 Single Unders

Box height -> 20/16 -> as needed

Cool Down:

Pigeon Pose on Box – 1 Min per side
