Tip of the Day
Cycling thrusters is a lot like cycling wall balls, similar movement, different equipment and finishing position.  Their cycling is similar in that if you have any deviance in the path of the equipment, you make the movement twice as hard.  This means that if your bar goes anywhere besides straight up and down, you're doing way too much work.  The shortest and fastest way from point A to B is a straight line so going around your head is definitely not an option.  Let your hips fire the bar off your shoulders to minimize the pressing and your thruster workouts will feel much better.
