The glute bridge targets what it’s named for—your booty—but not just in a strengthbuilding way. The move activates your glute muscles, which helps you actually use the strength you’ve built up in them.
1 Sit flat on the floor, with your knees bent. Loop each end of a resistance band around your ankles and feet; your feet should be holding the bottom half of the loop in place on the floor (as if you were standing on it). Grab the rest of the band and pull it toward you until it rests around your hips and on your pelvis.
2 Lie back so you’re flat on the floor. Your arms should be on the floor beside you, palms facing down.
3 Lift your hips off the floor as you squeeze your glutes and core; lift until your knees, hips, and shoulders form a straight line. Hold for 3 seconds at the top, then lower back down to start.
4 That’s 1 rep. Do at least 10, or as many as you can.
