Hip Thrusts

These are great exercises that are relatively easy to do and are great at tightening the glutes! Glutes are really important as they help support your back including your lumbar spine and also support your knees. When we are doing any kind of glute work we want to be in a posterior position to be able to get maximin glute activation and as they help support your back including your lumbar spine and also support your knees. When we’re training glutes it is important to have our hip positioning right. You can position them in two ways either anterior tilt, which is as I like to explain as a metaphor as your bucket (hips) is spilling water out the front. The opposite is posterior tilt where your hips come back past the neutral position where your ‘bucket’ is now spilling over the back instead. When we are doing any kind of glute work we want to be in a posterior position to be able to get maximin glute activation.
– When doing a hip thrust we want to first line out shoulder blades up with the side of the bench with elbows off.
– Hands-on hips, raise your bottom up off the ground and we want to start in top position with our knees in a 90-degree angle
– Lowering your bottom to the floor and then raising again making sure you’re in the posterior tilt position to maximise the glute activation!
