6. Kettlebell Thruster or Squat & Shoulder Press
The kettlebell thruster takes the push press and makes it even more dynamic by exaggerating the push part of the movement.
The kettlebell squat and press is a full body exercise that not only works the shoulders but heavily challenges the legs, buttocks, hamstrings, abs, back stabilisers and cardio.
The demands on the shoulders are similar to the push press in that the sticking point from the racked position is avoided due to the momentum coming out of the bottom of the squat position.
You will also find the shoulders fatigue just holding and maintaining the kettlebell throughout the exercise.
