Barbell Thruster

How to Properly Perform a Barbell Thruster

  • Feet shoulder-width apart
  • Bar starts in rack position
  • Send your hips back and down to descend into the bottom of the front squat, once you reach full depth where your hip crease is below the knee, quickly drive back up using your legs
  • Once your hips fully extend, continue pressing the bar overhead until your arms are locked out, supporting the weight with active shoulders
  • Pull the bar back down to the body, then lower yourself to cycle repetitions
