Our Thursday challenge is best done with dumbbells, but anything weighty will do. If you don’t have dumbbells, start cruising around Craiglist.com, Play it Again Sports, and yard sales for a pair. You should be able to find nice & ugly dumbbells for 50 cents a pound – go for a weight that makes everything feel oh so excellent gooooood in today’s thruster workout.

Things I’ve used in lieu of dumbbells for thrusters: gallon milk containers filled with water;  barstools, one in each hand; flowerpots filled with dirt; the end of a picnic table; a barbell, two backpacks filled with books.

For 1 point for your team:

5 sun salutations

7-12 thrusters, depending on weight of what you’re thrustering
10 pushups
7-12 thrusters
