Thruster 3.0

SKU: Thruster 3.0 + Rotating Back Pad Accessory


The BC Strength Thruster 3.0 is the best way to perform the hip thrust exercise, which is the most effective way to increase the strength and size of the gluteus maximus for enhanced sports performance. The BC Strength Thruster 3.0 allows the use of resistance bands, free weights or a combination of both to create the biggest challenge to the glute muscles.

The BC Strength Thruster 3.0 improves on the previous 2.0 model with the addition of a rounded back pad, an adjustable back pad height, and the ability to add an optional Rotating Back Pad, which also acts as a Nordic Ham Curl attachment.

The BC Strength Thruster 3.0 is a standalone unit built to a commercial quality. The incorporation of the bench within the BC Strength Thruster 3.0 reduces the risk of injury to the trainee from movement of an unsecured bench.

Please note that no Bar, Plates or Resistance Bands are included with this purchase.

Easy to operate and comfortable to use. Also like how you can do multiple exercises on it.


I love it. It helps us do the exercises we want. Shipping was fast and they are very friendly.


Incredibly sturdy, built well, simple to put together!!


I have been wanting the thruster for years!!!! And I finally decided to purchase it and I love it! The pad is my favorite. I used to hate using a bench because they were always too tall for me but with the thruster you can adjust the height. 10/10

Booty Time

Love it, very sturdy and the rotating piece is a plus. About to try to do hypers with it, I think I’m able to do that. Got the bands and use them instead of bar for Bret’s workouts, just more portable and it still burns! Happy to have this piece for my booty journey ❤️

The Rotating Back Pad

  • The Thruster 3.0 comes with a Rotating Back Pad. This is interchangeable with the standard Thruster 3.0 rounded back pad.

  • The Rotating Back Pad offers a unique, complementary hip thrusting experience. With your back resting on the pad, and the torso hinging around the bar, the erectors are removed from the equation and the movement is felt mostly in the glutes.

  • The Rotating Back Pad can also be used to allow for Nordic Ham Curls. Simply rest this across the unit, kneel on the pad, and fix your feet/heels under the standard back pad.

Adjustable Back Pad Height

  • Both the standard back pad and the Rotating Back Pad are height adjustable from 14.5" to 17.5".

  • Simply set the back pad at the desired height, and then insert the pin.

  • Once the pin has been inserted then you can lock this in place.
