It is not difficult to perform squat thrust. First of all you will put your hands on the floor, shoulder width apart, with the legs stretched, just like in the normal push up position. You will then try to bring both legs forward. You have to bring the legs forward such that they are underneath your body. You can do this by bending your knees and thrusting forward. And then you will try to return to the original position. You have to do it quick and every movement should be strong and powerful in order to make the exercise more effective.

Although the exercise is good for fat burning, you should also be careful with your calorie intake. You should avoid junk food and snacks such as potato chips. You should also take more veggies and fruits. As mentioned, you will need both exercising and dieting in order to lose weight.
