The Dumbbell Thruster

6
ByCrossFit September 9, 2019

The long line of action of the thruster coupled with the difficulty of controlling two dumbbells creates a robust training stimulus. Any technical inefficiencies or positional weaknesses are immediately highlighted by the dumbbells. Start with a light set of dumbbells and refine your technique before challenging yourself with greater load.
