On my Instagram page, I’ve been receiving a lot of questions from women asking how to get the bar into proper position during the hip thrust. I therefore decided to film a quick video on the topic, detailing the various methods. The video shows:
- How to get the bar into proper position when using > 135 lbs (easy)
- How to get the bar into proper position with bumper plates (easy)
- How to get the bar into proper position with smaller plates (complicated, but doable)
- How to get into proper position with a tall bench (complicated, but doable)
And what if you have giant thighs and struggle to roll the bar over your legs and onto your hips? Click HERE to see a solution for that problem.
Ladies, within a couple of months you should be hip thrusting at least 135 lbs for reps. When you reach this milestone, hip thrusting becomes much more comfortable.
