January Exercise of the Month: Hip Thruster

Engaging the glutes improves the calorie-burning benefit of your exercise routine, and many experts agree that few exercises target the glutes better than the hip thruster.

Glutes, hamstrings and erector spinae 

Core stabilization & glute strength

  • Begin seated on the ground with your back against a bench. Feet planted firmly on the ground.
  • Keep knees stable & lift hips off of the ground.
  • Rise until the body forms a straight line from the shoulders to the knees.
  • Hold & slowly return to floor, touching the floor momentarily.
  • Repeat 10-12 times.
*For an advanced option add a bar or plate near your hips.  

  • Start position

    Finish position
