Over 8 years ago I started hip thrusting and prescribing hip thrusts to clients (click HERE to read about the Evolution of the Hip Thrust and see over a hundred variations). It goes without saying that I’ve seen all types of hip thrusts – the good, the bad, and the ugly. In this article I want to discuss what I believe to be the most important aspects of hip thrusting.
If You Don’t Feel Massive Levels of Tension or Metabolic Stress in the Glutes, then What’s the Point?
There is no 1RM hip thrusting championship. You’re not going to go home with any award or trophy for setting a hip thrust 1RM record. Sure, it’s good for bragging points, but the purpose of hip thrusting is to build glutes.
