    1 x 7 Thrusters
    95,115,125,135,145,155 (F), 150

    Amazingly enough, in 11 months, this is the first time I’ve done a thruster workout. So the way Larry and I figured it………………….that’s 6 PR’s in one day!

  2. Will Blankenship says:

    Thrusters: 1-1-1-1-1-1-1

    135, 145, 155, 165, 175, 175, 185 (2X)

    Failed twice at 185. Was shooting for 195. Felt like crap today.

  3. z says:

    155, 155, 160, 165, 170, 175, 185

  4. Larry Lowe says:

    95, 115, 135, 145, 155, 165 (pr), 175 (f)

    I tweaked that stupid muscle in my back – Kevin knows which one I’m talking about – the Lowe defect muscle.

    -Larry….the best thing I’ve discovered for that muscle strain/cramp is to work it like hell. Strangely rest seems to make it worse.

  6. Zak says:

    Thrusters 205, 215, 225, 235(x), 235(X)

  7. Zak says:

    Shit…. it was 7 reps after all

    Picture of Russell from the SportingNews.com climbing the hill hot on Chris Spealer’s trail!

    Pretty bad ass!

    Here is the actual article

  10. Clint says:

    Did this one while Winkles did the thrusters, impressive he topped out at 255 big weight.

    Anyways GHD and Back Extensions


    My back is deep fried. I’ll go for some light thrusters tomorrow.

  11. Robert Montgomery says:

    30 135# Squat Cleans for time: 6:05. Then max pushups in 30secs with 10#Vest: 31 PR with vest

  12. Hudson Slater says:


  13. Daniel Byrne says:


    GHD and Back Ext couplet

    Warmed-up with squat therapy and light front squats.
    In between set of thrusters, I worked on butterfly pull-up. Sets of 15.

  14. Katie says:

    Thrusters: 65-75-85-95(PR)-95-95-85

    I want to point out a couple of things in case any one is interested:

    1. Robb Wolf is hosting a nutrition certification in Atlanta on Saturday, November 14th. It’s a little ways away, but these certs sell out quickly. Cost is $195. If you are interested, check out: http://www.regonline.com/builder/site/Default.aspx?eventid=713464
    Josh and I are going, and Russell mentioned he was interested.

    2. I am looking for a female interested in training together in the afternoon class. I’ve decided to step up my game and get my butt in gear to compete next spring, so if you are interested, let me know!

  15. Michael says:

    Thruster 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 reps

    115, 125, 135, 145, 150(X), 150(PR), 155(X)

    On the time I failed at 150 I actually drove the bar right into my chin which didn’t feel too good. 150 felt pretty easy, probably could have gotten 155 with Russell watching my form.

  16. klowe says:

    Awesome Katie!!!

    The competitions are awesome!

    on that note….save OCTOBER 3 and 4!!!

    There will be an October Fest games in Nashville. Training starts NOW!!!

  17. klowe says:

    oh yeah. Anyone want to do a “fitness challenge” thing in Atlanta on August 1?

    It is only a day event thing but something fun to do……..I’ll post a link as soon as I find it.

  18. LeshaS says:


    85-95-95-95-100 (pr)-100-105(failed – but just barely!)

  20. Katie says:

    Sounds great Kevin – count me in for both!

  21. Daniel says:

    I’m interested Kevin. Also anyone who plays tennis, want to hit around?

  22. Katie says:

    Found the Fitness Challenge link:

  23. Jakub Sikorski says:

    135/155F/145F/145/145/145/135 + 20×95

    I am very unhappy with my performance during this workout. The extra 20 reps were just to work on my form.

  24. Mandy says:

    Made up pull up workout

    Did 1 round: 3 5#, 5 strict, 7 kipping… killed my arms
    Did 9 rounds: 3 strict, 5 kipping, 7 jumping

    27:__ 10 minutes longer than last.. Could hardly do a strict after the first round.

  25. Mandee Miller says:

    Thrusters: 95-105-115-115-120(X)-115(X)-110
