Barbell Thruster

The Thruster is one of the greatest lifts no one has ever heard of in the gym. Designed as a combination of a Front Squat and an Overhead or Push Press,
The Thruster has surprised many experts in the fitness world, especially when used as part of a High Intensity Interval Training or a CrossFit workout.

The Thruster produces results unlike any other exercise and here's how to do it.

1. To begin, you take the barbell and hold it at shoulder height resting on your chest.
Elbows under or slightly in front of the bar.

2. Squat down, keeping the weight on your shoulders.

3. Begin by coming up and out of your squat.

4. As you rise up, press the weights to the overhead lockout position.

5. You can either press as you rise or use the momentum to help rocket the weight overhead.

Muscle used:

Strenuous rowing uses more than 800 calories an hour and with less risk of injury than other sports.

1. The catch: Lean slightly forward with your arms straight and shins almost vertical
2. The drive: Press down your legs, gradually lean back and finish pulling with your arms (elbows going back)
3. The finish: Finish with your legs straight, arms bent with you upper arms by your torso and the rowing handle at your abdomen
4. The recovery: Straighten your arms, lean forward from the hips, then bend your knees to slide forward.
5. Return to the catch (1) Ready for the next stroke
