This purchase includes a BC Strength Thruster Bar Lite and a a set of 2 x 45lb BC Strength Thruster Plates.
The BC Strength Thruster Bar Lite is specifically designed for the hip thrust exercise. Shorter and thicker than our standard Thruster Bar, the BC Strength Thruster Bar Lite spreads the load more effectively and makes for a more comfortable exercise. The length of the bar also allows your Hip Thrusts to be more stable, producing greater glute activation.
The BC Strength Thruster Bar Lite holds standard Olympic plates (inside diameter of 2").
The BC Strength Thruster Plates are an extra 3 inches in diameter compared to standard plates. Even if you have big thighs and are using a squat sponge, you can comfortably get into position and get your thrust on. No more awkwardness!
An added benefit is that the plates naturally serve as a "jack" or elevated loading pin in that you can pile on additional weight with ease.
A final advantage of the BC Strength Thruster Plates is that you can perform "block pulls" with them without any blocks. The 1.5 inch elevation is great for people with limited hip flexion mobility who can't get into proper deadlift position without rounding their low back.
