The Kettlebell Thrusters

There really isn't anything I can say that will make kettlebell thrusters funny — they just aren't. Kettlebell thrusters blend together a squat and shoulder press with all the fun and emotion as having a clown die at your birthday party. That's about as hilarious as it gets. Sorry.

By that description of a kettlebell thruster, you might think the exercise is easy but it's not. Squats are meant to be executed using heavy weights — it's kind of their thing — so, by using such a small of weight (35 lbs. in this case) the cardiovascular aspects of the workout take over since you're going to be performing a lot of reps.

Don't get me wrong, the repetition of this kettlebell workout is still exhausting, but then again, so is taking a Viagra and jerking off for three hours to "The Golden Girls" reruns. Only one of those will help you build muscle though. - Quagmire Internet Porn

Thrusting Those Kettlebells

  1. Stand up straight, feet shoulder-width apart.
  2. Lift the kettlebell (or kettlebells) to shoulder height.
  3. Press your hips back, bend your knees and lower yourself into a squat until your thighs are parallel to the ground.
  4. Press your weight into your heels and stand back up.
  5. Straighten your arms and lift the weight straight up over your head.
  6. Lower the weight back down to shoulder height and repeat.
