September 08, 2017  |  Ben Seward

In this blog, we will be teaching you how to perform the perfect thruster! But firstly, what is a thruster? A thruster is movement that includes a clean, front squat and a push press in one fluid movement. These tips will help you perform and improve your thrusters:

1. Master the Clean

To begin the thruster, you must perform a proper clean to get the bar into the front rack position.

2. The Front Squat

The front squat is pivotal in this movement, make sure your feet are a shoulders width apart and toes pointed out. Make sure your hips reach parallel.

3. Explode

Explode from the squat and push the bar overhead making sure you push your head through. Make sure you press the bar straight up.

4. The re-rack

Without pausing at the top, return back to the rack position and repeat the whole movement.
