A squat clean and a thruster equals 1 “cluster.” Yuck! This was a rare Sunday morning when I coach at United Barbell. I had 20 minutes before class started. This simple couplet, was perfect to get my body moving and make me nice and sweaty.
I was definitely moving slowly the first two rounds until my body warmed up. It felt great to be on a rower (since I don’t have one at home) and put a barbell over my head. This workout is not in my wheelhouse, but clusters are a great movement for full-body training – and they definitely get the heart rate up!
