Are you looking for exercises that work the entire body, burn calories, and build muscle?


Then why not use the Kettlebell Thruster, and you will easily achieve all three all at once!
When exercising, many people become lost in unnecessarily excessive and lengthy programmes.
Why not shorten your workout, by achieving more intensity in a shorter time?! The best way to do this is to combine exercises, thus working multiple muscle groups all at once!

The Kettlebell Thruster gives you the benefits of both the Squat (for the Legs), and also the Overhead Press (for the Arms and Shoulders).

1. Bring two kettlebells to your shoulders. Clean the kettlebells to your shoulders by extending through the legs and hips as you pull the Kettlebells towards your shoulders. Rotate your wrists as you do so. This will be your starting position.
2. Begin to squat by flexing your hips and knees, lowering your hips between your legs. Maintain an upright, straight back as you descend as low as you can.
3. At the bottom, reverse direction and squat by extending your knees and hips, driving through your heels. As you do so, press both kettlebells overhead by extending your arms straight up, using the momentum from the squat to help drive the weights upward..
4. As you begin the next repetition, return the weights to the shoulders.
