No matter the object used, the thruster is a potent functional movement that works from full flexion to full extension of the ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, and arm.

I did these with a piece of luggage when I was traveling and had no access to a gym; these can taxing after a while!

Where’s the judge yelling no rep for depth? Just kidding, and for all the juniors out there, this guy is getting a good range of motion and using glutes, quads, shoulders, lungs and heart. Plus getting much needed flexibility, and the proper depth allows those with arthritis to stay active.

I view the thruster as a quintessential CrossFit movement. Showing the world how to embrace the benefits of this movement, even if you don't own a barbell, is a gift I hope people share with family and friends.

I like the concept. or even luggage thruster, ground to overhead compartment. Interesting choice of music...
