  • Stand with your feet hip-width apart, holding a barbell at thigh level. Your hands should be about shoulder-width apart.
  • Keeping your back straight, bend at your waist and sit your hips back to lower the bar.
  • Keep the bar close to your shins and lower as far as your flexibility allows.
  • Forcefully contract your glutes to extend at your hips and stand up.
  • See? It really is that simple. But unfortunately, there are some faults that hold people back from realizing the full benefits of this move.

🚨 Barbell Hip Thrust Tips


  1. If just using your bodyweight, you can cross your arms in front of your chest or simply have them straight out to the sides. Utilize whichever method is more comfortable.
  2. Ensure that the lower back doesn’t arch as you extend the hip, you should focus on squeezing the glutes and slightly posteriorly tilting the pelvis.
  3. Ideally you should prioritize a straight line from your knees through your shoulders at the peak of contraction.
  4. Don’t allow the hips to drop or rotate as you bridge the hips up.
  5. Focus on exhaling as you bridge the hips up. You shouldn’t feel the movement through your lower back at all.
  6. If you can’t seem to feel your glutes activating, palpate the musculature with your hands and focus on pausing the movement at the peak of contraction.
