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 a 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.

    I am so lucky to have all of the BC hip thrust benches in my gym, and I really didn't think they could get any better tbh! BUT yet again Bret comes through with the goods! This bench is on a new level! It is just perfect that the back pads can be adjustable to suit everyone! I find the new rounded back pad a lot more comfortable, and the rotating back pad is game changer!!! My Clients and I found using the rotating back pad gave us a lot of lower glute engagement, and also SO comfortable for single leg variations! Just like most BC strength equipment, I love how versatile this bench is, the rounded back pad is perfect to utilise for Bulgarian split squats, and the nordic ham curls also work so well! You need this bench ;)

    What a game changer!!!

    I just got mine last week along with the rotating bar pad. Never expected it to be so heavy and sturdy!! I loved it. It gives you perfect stability and the rotating back pad is a total game changer. You can feel the burn even without any weight on. Everyone should have a thruster at home or at their gym. This piece of equipment deserves to be as popular as the leg press. Thank you Bret for inventing so many cool stuff for us gym rats

    Love it!

    This thruster is amazing! I put it together by myself; super easy assembly! I had been using the 2.0 version and recently purchased this! What a difference the back pad makes, the adjustable height settings and round pad make it soooo much more comfortable-I see major PRs in the near future!
    One thing I wish were available is the ability to purchase the rotating back pad accessory separately...I didn't want to spend a whole lot so just went with the thruster itself, but in the future may want to purchase it as well.

    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.
