12/22/10 Thrusters/Burpees

For time:

Five rounds of:

10 thrusters, 95 lbs
10 burpees

source: JG
time: 15:01
works: quads, hams, glutes, chest, shoulders, endurance
difficulty: 7
my effort: 6

I designed this workout to be a) fast and b) a complete workout. The weight prescribed isn't very heavy, but the difficulty comes in managing the transition from the thruster to the burpees, as both are a very exhausting movement. Focus on minimizing the amount of rest taken (ideally, you'll need none), and concentrate on the next movement. It's a short workout, but long enough to thoroughly exhaust the body if performed correctly.
