Thruster 5-5-5-5-5
Goal should be to get a 5 rep max – bar starts on the floor

Rd 1 - 95lbs - first lift always seems harder than it should
Rd 2 - 115lbs
Rd 3 - 135lbs
Rd 4 - 155lb
Rd 5 - 175lb
Rd 6 - 185 (3) failed on 4th attempt - couldnt lock out

I'm stuck at having to bail on the 3rd or 4th rep at 135 lbs. I end up holding the bar too far from my body. Any suggestions on remedial work to get that bar in closer?

Pat - the coaches here tell me i should be trying to slice off my face. They dont say nose as mine is so big that would have my arms too far away from my body as well.
