Equipment Needed


How To Perform the Dumbbell Thruster

  1. Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart, holding a dumbbell in each hand at shoulder height with palms facing inward.
  2. Engage your core and lower into a squat by bending your knees and pushing your hips back, keeping your chest up and back straight.
  3. Descend until your thighs are parallel to the ground or as low as your mobility allows.
  4. Drive through your heels to stand up explosively and simultaneously press the dumbbells overhead by extending your arms.
  5. Fully extend your arms at the top, then lower the dumbbells back to shoulder height as you prepare for the next rep.
  6. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions, maintaining control and proper form throughout the movement.

Pro Tips for Dumbbell Thruster

  • Ensure your knees track over your toes during the squat to avoid knee strain.
  • Keep your core engaged throughout the movement to protect your lower back.
  • Breathe in as you lower into the squat and exhale powerfully as you press the dumbbells overhead.
  • Start with lighter weights to master the form before progressing to heavier weights.
  • Avoid arching your back during the overhead press; maintain a neutral spine.
