when the workout calls for a "95 lb" thruster, does that mean 95 on the bar, or 95 lbs including the bar's 45? thanks

95 lbs including the bar's 45. In essence, a 45 lb bar plus two 25 lb plates. Try doing high rep thrusters and you'll see that doing 95 on the bar would be next to impossible.

Hi Hank, and welcome aboard. Typically whenever you see a weight mentioned it will refer to a total combined weight, that is bar, weights, collars, etc. And likewise, when you see a reference to a weight for dumbells, it's referring to both dumbells of that weight, ie. '35# x 30 reps' means two dumbells of 35 pounds each.

thanks for the answers, and for also addressing the dumbell question, i think that one was going to be next. :-)

i am assuming however, that low rep thrusters, like todays (oct 18) can be 95 on the bar or even more.

When the weight isn't specified, and it drops from low reps to single reps with no time limits, go as high as you can go on that particular day for the single reps.

i havent been able to find a rest period for the 3,2,1,1 etc workouts. do you rest as short as you can, or do a strength-ish rest of 3-5 mins? thanks

Hank, it's the latter. Rest as long as needed to lift the highest 1RM.

I personally rest around 2 minutes between sets. Maybe 3-4 if trying for a real max.

Tony B. had the best line for this in the comments section on a focus day. It went something like, rest as long as it takes the nerves to reset, but keeping the heart rate up. In other words, whatever works for you. If you're still shakey from the last rep, wait another minute.
I know I rush myself at times, like I did with the DL's yesterday.
