Hip Thrust Variation (Exercise of the Week #39)

In this video Nick Tumminello of Performance University demonstrates a single-leg hip thrust variation developed due to the fact that the glutes don’t just extend the hip, they also abduct and externally rotate the hip. Check out the video to see how he performs a tweaked version of single-leg hip thrust in order to take advantage of this physiological reality, and potentially increase the glute activation involved.
