5. You lose balance: put on the Oly shoes

Weightlifting exercises should look perfect and well controlled. So if your regular training shoes feel to “soft” to keep you in a solid position, put on the oly shoes. Hard, solid heel will help you stay balanced throughout the movement. Trying to keep balance doesn’t just cost your extra energy and focus, but also increases the risk for a potential injuries. No balance, no control.

6. You begin too fast: don’t start unbroken

You might go unbroken for the first round, but you’ll definitely broke down later. Thruster is a metabolic conditioning exercise which needs proper pacing and smart approach when being done in higher amount of reps. Take a rest even if you feel your tank is still full. Never forget there are at least 4 more rounds ahead.
