Child's Play
Daily Mindset
"There are risks and costs of a program of action. But those are far less than the risks and costs of inaction." - John F. Kennedy

Change may be one of the single most paralyzing things. Because in the lack of change… is safe. It’s comfortable. But in that comfort, we are literally confining ourselves to a box. A world that cannot grow further than what it has already grown to.

If we want to grow, we need to face the terror of change. Face the chance that we may fail. Face the chance that we may embarrass ourselves. Face the chance, that we may never be "safe" again.

When we realize that it is ourselves, not our circumstances, holding us back, safety becomes the least safe thing we can so. The only risk becomes playing it safe.
Thruster (Heavy set of 3)
Child's Play (Time)
3 Rounds:
10 Thrusters (115/85)
20 Deadlifts (115/85)
50 Double Unders
Let's try to rip the band-aid off and push for big sets on the thruster today
Breaking this movement into a couple sets requires a good deal of rest and extra cleans that don't count towards the score
Fight for 1 set, but take 2 if necessary
It is better to go big sets here and small sets on the deadlift based on the nature of the movements
While this is the easier of the barbell movements, it is also much easier to break and get started again than the thruster
If you're thinking about going 20 straight, there will likely be more resting involved
Going smaller sets can help you immediately start deadlifting after finishing the final thruster
Consider the following options:
2 Sets: 10-10 or 12-8
3 Sets: 8-7-5
4 Sets: 6-6-4-4 or 5-5-5-5
Following the deadlifts, a grippy movement, the double unders can be surprisingly difficult
Let's find a break-up strategy that we would likely use if completing 150 for time
Here are a few ways to approach sets of 50:
1 Set: 50
2 Sets: 25-25 or 30-20
3 Sets: 25-15-10
After Party
3 Sets of 5 - Bench Press
3 Sets of 10 - Pausing Glute Bridges
3 Sets of 15 - Weighted Hip Extensions
Rest 1:00-2:00 between sets.
