Workout of the Week #19


Take on your Men’s Fitness workout of the week, a new 52-part series to keep you inspired and challenged for 2015. We’ll post a new workout every Monday and for an added incentive, we’ll take on the workout too so you can see how your best time compares with a member of the MF team.

Workout of the Week #19

Do five rounds of 10 40kg thrusters and 10 toes-to-bar as fast as you can.

Thruster form guide:
Rest the bar across your upper chest with your hands holding it in place and your elbows as high as you can get them. Keeping your chest up and back straight, squat down until your thighs pass parallel, then drive back up, using the momentum to press the weights overhead. Lower the weights to your shoulders and continue into the next rep.

Watch the video, take on the challenge and post your best score in the comments section below.

MF’s par time: 6min
