Barbell Thruster

Barbell Thruster
Edgar Artiga

This hallmark CrossFit exercise is a combo of a front squat and an overhead press.


  1. Thruster 2
    Grasp a barbell in a front rack position, with your elbows up, and assume a shoulder-width stance.
  2. Thruster 1
    Squat down.
  3. Thruster 3
    Explosively drive up, pressing the bar overhead. Lower it back to your shoulders. That’s one rep.
