Thursdays conditioning workout comes from the CrossFit Games Age Group Online Qualifier. It is an excellent sister workout to the high rep pullup/heavy clean workout. Both workouts are pretty high skill and heavy, but where Tuesday was heavy and long, Thursday is heavy and short. Best scores will come from athletes that put the pedal down and never come off the gas. Unlike Tuesday, where the longer duration allowed from some feeling out the workout, or even mistakes, the short duration will mean any missed reps will be costly. A missed snatch in a 5 minute workout is a 15 second swing. If you were doing this workout for the CrossFit Games, and you missed more than 1 rep in a row, I would make you stop and restart.
HSPU, Burpees and moderately heavy Snatch means shoulders! In your warm up, work your HSPU position. Before you start the workout, you want to be hot and sweaty.
