Glute Bridge

Glute Bridge using Long Loop Body Band. Person lying on their back with band wrapped round feet & over their hips
An old favourite for targeting your glutes.

Besides looking good, having a strong bum also helps your posture & athleticism as well as helping to protect your back & knees from injury.
A variation on the Glute Bridge is the Hip Thrust, which is where instead of the ground, your shoulders are resting on a raised surface like a bench or sofa.
Hip Thrusts will target more of your glutes & quads, whereas the Glute Bridge will also activate your Hamstrings and lower back.
Here's some tips to perform the Glute Bridge:
  • Lie flat on your back, on the floor or with a yoga mat
  • With your long body band, double over and loop each end under your feet.
  • Lift the centre of the band over your knees and position it on your hips
  • Squeeze your glutes and lift your hips upwards until you form a straight line from your shoulders to your knees.
  • Hold briefly before slowly lowering your bum back to the ground.
  • Repeat for 8-12 reps
As usual aim for 3 sets, alone or as part of a circuit.
