Instructions: How To

Focusing on the glutes and hamstrings, this variation introduces an adjustable resistance with the loop band, enhancing the thrust movement's effectiveness for building strength and muscle in the lower body. It's superior for isolating the glutes compared to traditional hip thrusts.

  1. Secure a loop band around the legs of a flat bench, depending on your specific equipment. 
  2. Position yourself with your shoulder blades on the bench.
  3. Wrap one side of the loop band around your hips.
  4. Position your feet flat on the ground, such that your knees are bent 90 degrees at the top of the movement. 
  5. Drive your hips up by engaging your glutes and hamstrings. Hold this position for a moment.
  6. Return to the starting position while maintaining tension in your glutes and hamstrings.
