With this lift, we are going to be chaining three different exercises into one. The Squat, the Hammer Curl, and the Palms In Overhead Press will all get connected into one repetition.
The Squat Curl Press is a great conditioning exercise.
Step 1: Start by kneeling on the ground. You can use a weighted vest or barbell racked across your back to add extra resistance to this lift.
Step 2: Now sit back with your hips until your glutes are touching your feet. Make sure you keep your head up and shoulders pulled back and down.
Step 3: Now use your hips and explode upwards. You need to generate enough power so that you land with your feet flat on the floor.
The Push Jerk will help you to develop your body's strength and endurance.
This lift has become very popular in many CrossFit and athletic training routines. It requires raw overhead power and proper technique for someone to perform this lift correctly.
Before using this lift you should already have a solid technique with the strict presses, and push presses.
The Strict Press will teach you how to move a weight overhead.
The Push Press will instruct you how to begin using your legs to help drive a weight overhead.
When used consistently the Kettlebell Clean and Jerk will develop strength, power, and help you condition your body.
When used with a lighter weight it is a great way to burn a high number of calories.
The first thing we are going to cover is the difference between an overhead press and the Jerk.
When you are performing an overhead press, your feet stay firmly planted. You will then use your shoulder and arm power to move the weight overhead.
When you are doing a Jerk, you will first use your legs to create momentum to drive the bar upwards. Then you will either Split or Squat under the bar. You only use the arms to help push your body under the weight.
Use this full body compound exercise to burn fat and gain strength.
The Kettlebell Thruster has gained popularity in many Crossfit, Mixed Martial Arts, and athletic training routines for a good reason.
The exercise combines the Front Squat and Shoulder Press into one movement. When multiple compound exercises get combined into a new movement, it is often called complexes action instead of compound one.
You will also have to perform the Clean exercise when moving into the starting position for the thruster.
While your Squat will get limited by the amount of weight that you can overhead press / Clean. It is a great way for your body to burn a high number of calories.

Recently it has become a lot more popular in CrossFit circles.

So if your first set was 10 repitions the second set do 9 and then 8 and so on. This method works best when you are implementing progresive overload.
