Today's Mobility Monday video will help your wrists and forearms for the thrusters. We learned from The Movement Fix seminar that most of us actually have the mobility for a good front rack. If you can touch your shoulders with your extended thumbs, as in the front rack, you can hold a barbell with your elbows high and forearms nearly parallel to the ground.
One reason many of us struggle with the front rack is motor control. We're just not used to having our upper body, arms and wrists in that position. Remember, just because it's difficult doesn't mean it's wrong, bad, or not worth doing. It just means you need to think about it more and focus on getting into a good position.
Follow the mobility drills in the video and really focus on your position. Today's workout is just as much about your focus and mental toughness as it is your physical toughness. Good luck!

Use your 3RM for the heavy singles. Use 75-85% of your 3RM for the set of 10, 55-65% for the set of 20 and 45-55% (or the same weight as your WLC pre-challenge workout) for the set of 30. These are taken from the rack and should be unbroken. This workout develops strength, power, and mental toughness. Enjoy!
