This weeks' banded exercise is the Glute Bridge, using your short loop 'booty' band.

If you're looking to strengthen your bum, a glute bridge is a great addition to your circuit.

Add it to a squat, fire hydrant and clamshell to target all of the major muscles in your glutes.

If you're feeling brave and want the additional challenge, try adding a hip abduction at the top of the movement.

Here are some tips:
  • Start on your back with your back & feet flat to the floor
  • Have your short band position just above your knees. You will need to activate your muscle to keep it in place
  • Use your hands for balance as you drive your hips up towards the ceiling
  • Aim to make a straight line from your head to your knees (this may take some time to get there)
  • Hold briefly at the top before lowering slowly to the start position
  • If you're adding in the abduction, gently open your knees slightly at the top before bringing them back to the centre
Aim for 3 sets of 8-12 reps (or as many as you can do).

Always remember that performing these exercises correctly & with control will beat just bashing them out and getting them over with.

If you're looking for progression, slow down the move, add more reps/sets or increase the resistance of the band.
