A fun variation on a classic

The Squat to Press, also known sometimes as a Thruster, is one of the most simple and effective exercises out there.  Aside from it involving a squat, which puts mobility and stability to the test, it also requires the use of ground force to power the weights above your head.

This week I tried adding a stability twist to the press portion of this exercise.  By flipping the kettlebells upside down, it demands a greater amount of scapular stability and grip strength to keep them balanced.  It also requires lowering your normal amount of weight for this exercise due to the increase in difficulty.

Give this one a try and see if you can keep the kettlebells balanced!
