  • 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.
