“Weighted Hip Thrusts– Weighted hip thrusts are very popular because people have an easier time “feeling” their glutes working. It makes sense because it forces you to engage your glutes at the top of the ROM (Range of Motion). I recommend using a weighted med ball or barbell for this exercise, a step bench or regular Olympic bench.
Tips to keep in mind when performing the Weighted Hip Thrust:
Start with the barbell in your lap as you are seated upright on the bench.
Slowly, begin to slide your hips off of the bench until scapulae (shoulder blades) and neck/head are supported on the bench, allowing your hips to drop towards the floor.
Think of this as you would be performing a basic Bridge Pose (as in yoga) and keep your hips moving the entire time with a slight pause/extra contraction of the glutes at the top of the ROM.
Keep the majority of your body weight in your heels. Again, you should be able to wiggle your toes inside of your shoes.
3 sets, 8-12 reps and the heavier you go, the more you can grow!”
