Instructions: How To

An excellent exercise for targeting the glutes and hamstrings, the mini loop band glute thrust amplifies the benefits of the traditional glute bridge. By adding resistance, this variation significantly increases muscle activation and strength, making it more effective for building lower body power and improving hip extension than its bodyweight counterpart.

  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. Control your hips back to the starting position and repeat.
