Instructions: How To

This exercise is a variation on the more standard Glute Bridge. Like other glute bridges, this exercise is performed as a hold, and primarily targets the glutes and hamstrings. By adding a mini loop band around, and just above the knee, you can further recruit smaller muscles around your hips, and get better muscle activation in general.

  1. Lie flat on your back with your palms facing down and knees bent and feet shoulder width apart with the band around your upper knees.
  2. Squeeze your glutes to raise your hips off the ground not allowing the band to pull your knees inward.
  3. Hold this top position for the allotted time.

Common Mistakes

  • Varying Tension with Bands

    Resistance increases as you stretch a band. Make sure you’re using a band that allows you to move through your full range of motion. The resistance may feel too light during parts of the movement.
