  1. BS: 215
    WOD: 8:46 (2:08/2:36/4:42)
    135# Thrusters – went heavy on Elizabeth’s recommendation, last round was brutal – onesy/twosies

  2. Back Squats at tempo: 205, 205, 225, 235
    WOD: 7:13. Subbed front squat (155lbs) for thruster to protect shoulder.

    Hats off to those who did the full thrusters at 155.
