OLYMPIC-BAR HIP THRUST

Health & Fitness - - Workout -

Sit on the mat with your back to a weights bench and lay a bar­bell across your hips, hold­ing it in both hands on ei­ther side of your hips. Place a towel around the bar to make it more com­fort­able if you wish. With your knees bent and feet firmly planted on the floor, lean back onto the bench so it’s gently press­ing into your up­per back (A). This is your start­ing po­si­tion. In­hale. Ex­hale. Hold­ing onto the bar­bell, press your heels into the mat and raise your hips off the floor un­til your body forms one straight line from chin to knee, rest­ing your shoul­ders on the bench and en­sur­ing your head is an ex­ten­sion of your spine (B). In­hale. Lower your hips to re­turn to the start­ing po­si­tion, but without rest­ing your glutes on the mat. Com­plete as many reps as you can in 20 sec­onds.
