Post Front Squat Loads and Workout Rounds to Comments
For the strength segment, after warming up perform 5 sets of  single rep Front Squats at 90% 1RM.  These should be very heavy.  Make sure you take good rest between these work sets (2-3 minutes).  If you get a PR, be sure to put it up on the board!

For the conditioning workout, use Dumbbells or KBs for the thrusters.  If you use KBs they should be resting on your forearms at the bottom of the movement, not sitting on your shoulders.

    Worked front squats at 215# as prescribed. They felt really good. Was tempted to go for a new 1RM, just for fun, but stayed away from it. METCON - DB Thrusters w/30# DB Ball Slams w/30# Ball Six complete rounds. Very satisfied with that. Also did 42 birthday ball slams, for the hell of it.
