Kettlebell Thruster July 13 2014

The kettlebell thruster begins with the feet shoulder width apart, toes slightly pointed out. The core is tight. The kettlebells are resting on the shoulders and the elbows should be up as much as possible. The first movement is a bend at the hips as if you are sitting and a continue the descent down until reaching parallel in the squat. Kettlebells remain engaged and elbows up. 

From the bottom of the squat, begin your ascent. Once you are about standing, use the momentum from the ascent to assist in pushing the kettlebells overhead. Lock out at the top with the kettlebells overhead.
