Thrusters are a workout exercise that crossfit people will know what to do. Crossfit focuses on doing
olympic-style weightlifting to maximize their workouts, and the thruster will do just that. It literally works out and hits every major muscle group in your body such as the quads, hamstrings, glutes, hip flexors, etc. This is definitely a compound exercise that will get you into shape, but when doing these olympic weightlifting, you must be careful. Since they use so many muscles and have complex movements to them, form has to be your priority as being injured from these workouts can be costly.
