Squat Thrusts

Skill level: 
Type: 
Equipment: 

The squat thrust builds strength and explosiveness in the lower body with an emphasis on the quads, glutes, and hamstrings. The squat thrust will also improve hip mobility and cardiovascular endurance. The exercise is commonly used in metabolic workouts to improve conditioning and fat loss. It requires less upper body strength than a burpee, which includes a pushup in the bottom position.
