Precautions and Tips for Bodyweight Hip Thrust

Don’t arch your back and focus on squeezing the glutes to lift off the ground.

Tilt the pelvis slightly.

In the best case your knees to shoulder should be in straight line at the peak of contraction.

As you bridge the hips upwards exhale. There should not be any movement in the lower back.

For some glutes might not activate, try palpating with hand and pausing at the peak of contraction.
