Hip Thrust, Bench Bridging
If your level of physical training is high enough, you can complicate the exercise by increasing the number of repetitions or adding an additional approach. Also you can try an advanced version of this movement, namely lifting the pelvis with a barbell. Additional burdening will give the muscles of the buttocks an increased load.
- If you are not used to working with a barbell or making a bridge at home, use an ordinary dumbbell, weight, or other weight. Grab the selected dumbell with your hands or place it on the bottom of the abdomen. Do the exercise.
- In order to ease the tension of the waist and avoid injuries, the gluteal bridge with dumbbells, barbell or other burdening is best done by leaning your back on the bench.
