POP: Thrusters

Barbell Thruster Warmup


Next up in our Points of Performance video series focuses on improving form during thrusters. We know this is not exactly everyone’s favorite CrossFit movement, so check out the videos below to hear what Coach B has to say about making this movement just a little bit more tolerable.

Key points:

  • keep your elbows up to get more leverage in the press
  • press when you get to the top of your squat
  • use the momentum of the weight on the way down to guide you into your squat
