treeseed commented on the word squat thrust
This term sounds vulgar to me.
A squat thrust is a calisthenic exercise. It typically is performed as follows:
From a standing "parade rest" position, drop to a squat position with your hands on the ground near your feet.
Throw the feet back, putting yourself into a push up position.
Again pull the feet forward to a squat position with hands on the floor.
Stand again in a parade rest position.
Repeat many times.
Performing the exercise at a fast speed maximizes its effectiveness.
