Thrusters rock – they combine a squat with a shoulder press, both done deliberately and safely. This is a fantastic stand alone exercise or even workout.
- Start from the rack position with a barbell (or dumbbells).
- Lower your body into a front squat.
- When returning from the bottom of your front squat drive the bar upwards until it reaches directly overhead and lock out your elbows at the top.
- Return the barbell to the rack position and repeat.
