Rodill leaves it all out on the table when he completes a workout.
3 rounds –
Thrusters to failure (125lb, 95lb, 65lb)
pull ups (or weighted pull ups) to failure
Rest 3 minutes
The only resting during the set with the thrusters in in the fully locked out position (no resting with the bar at the shoulder). The only resting during the set with the pull ups is hanging on the bar.
Post weights used and totals to comments.

. . .Despite the success of Mureika’s model, Peter Weyand, a physiologist at Southern Methodist University in Dallas who focuses on the biomechanics of running, said that mathematical models could never predict how fast humans might eventually run.
“Predicting it is fine for the sake of kicks, but it’s not a scientifically valid approach,” Weyand said. “You have to assume that everything that has happened in the past will continue in the future.”
He suggested that it’s impossible for mathematicians to predict the magnitude of the freakiness of athletic talent at the extreme margins of humanity. Bolt, it turns out, is a perfect example.
Weyand, who has conducted research on the body types of the top 45 100-meter sprinters in the last 15 years, said that almost all elite runners conform to the body norms for their race length, except for the most-recent Olympic champion.
“Bolt is an outlier. He’s enormous,” Weyand said. “Typically when you get someone that big, they can’t start.” . .
