Re: 45 1/2 bodyweight thrusters

Yeah, it still seems like madness to me! All other level II are checked, a good bite of the level III's and closing in on level IV at some, so it still looks like a grave error to me, even though some have done a decent effort in speaking about the plausability in it. Compared to Fran, I'd do Fran ANY time over a 45 rep thruster workout, even though Fran consists of ... well ... 45 thrusters. The pullups just seems like a breeze and a decent break from those goddamnawful thrusters.

How many out there have actually done it?

Re: 45 1/2 bodyweight thrusters

They are from the Levels formerly known as the Crossfit North Athletic Skill Standards. Designed by Dave Werner, now I think available at Level 4-Crossfit Seattle.

Here they are:

Re: 45 1/2 bodyweight thrusters

Ohh man-
That is evil!

First time I have looked at those "Skill Level" worksheets.

Try as I might - I am not sure I could ever run a 5:00 minute mile again in my life.

I could do it when I was in high school... but that 20th reunion is comin up next summer, and uhh....

Re: 45 1/2 bodyweight thrusters

here's some additional hell to pile on the mess: kevin aillaud, who owns crossfit HEL, has his own version of the athletic skills chart, but he requires that anyone attempting to get "cleared" as a certain level perform all the tasks within one 30 day period. so no training for four months to get that quick mile, and then another four months to the bodyweight clean, and etc. you just have to be an all-around monster.
