Rest as needed and determine 50% of your AMRAP Threshold for each station then,

For 15:00 (5 Rounds Each Station)

Minute One: Concept 2 Row (50% of AMRAP Threshold)
Minute Two: Thruster (50% of AMRAP Threshold)

Note: The concept for the “Threshold Interval Training Mash-up”  was first conceived in late 2003 during a conversation at Silver Spur restaurant between Greg Amundson and CrossFit founder Coach Greg Glassman. The threshold training achieves the same benefits of training at a percentage of your maximum strength. As an example of the Threshold concept: If you achieve 100 Double Unders during the AMRAP, you would then perform 60 repetitions of Double Under on the odd minutes of the EMOM workout. The Threshold training levels the playing field, and allows Athletes to set and determine their repetitions during a workout based on current capacity and fitness.
