I could not open the video demonstrating Dumbbell Thrusters. Can someone give me a description of how to do them?


Thanks

The "thruster" is a front squat/push-press combination movement. Welcome to the board, Corey.

Coach,
Thanks! One more quick question. Do you do a full squat and press the weight or do you do a full squat and then after that a partial squat to the push press? Does that even make sense?

Thanks for the help.

It's actually a very good question. The momentum from the front squat carries directly through to the press, so no, there isn't a second "dip", if you will. One stroke to overhead.
