*Building to a Heavy Thruster Weight


• The two movements before the barbell are simply designed to create a high level of fatigue in the legs and lungs

• That being said, let’s not hold back too much on the row and the plate hops

• Move quickly and try to get tired, as the point here is to train heavy weights under fatigue

• The 3-minute windows will help with creating some of that urgency

• Once you get to the thrusters, unbroken is the only way to go

• Pause in the front rack as needed for composure and balance

• Change out weights for the next round following the last thruster
