How to Resistance Band Glute Bridge
Exercise Families: Glute Bridge
Trainer: Ashley Steele
With a resistance band looped around your lower thighs, lie flat on your back on a yoga mat. Bend your knees and position your feet firmly on the mat, ensuring that they are hip-width apart and your spine is in a neutral position. Allow your arms to rest by your sides on the mat. This is your starting position.
Inhale. Exhale. Press your heels into the mat, and activate your glutes. Lift your hips off the ground until your body forms one straight line from chin to knee, resting on your shoulders.
Inhale. While keeping your hips raised and your glutes activated, hold the up-position briefly while pressing the knees outwards against the resistance band.
Exhale. Lower your spine onto the mat slowly, followed by your pelvis. Repeat for the specified amount of time or repetitions.
Glute bridges help shape your booty and strengthen your hamstrings. Get the most from this exercise by focusing on activating your glute muscles throughout the duration of the movement.
