The Squat to Overhead Press (a.k.a. Thrusters) is a great full body compound movement that will hit the upper and lower body as well as the core. Squat to Overhead Press can be done with a barbell, but we suggest starting off with a pair of dumbbells or kettlebells to get acclimated to the exercise.

How To Do Them:

  • Hold a pair of dumbbells next to your shoulders, and stand with your feet shoulder-width apart
  • Squat down until the tops of your thighs are parallel to the floor (or as low as you can comfortably go)
  • As you lower yourself, maintain good control and stabilize through the core
  • Push your body up from the squat as you press the dumbbells directly above your shoulders. Your biceps should be by your ears
  • Slowly lower the weights to the start position and repeat
