Video Transcript – Hip Thrust Workout
Hey guys, Kris Simpson here. I’ve got an amazing exercise today to isolate your glutes, but I’ve got to tell you I felt weird preparing for this. I figured dudes are going to be watching this, and here’s a dude telling other dudes how to train their butt…
That’s weird, but anyways, I think that girls train their butts way too much. Dudes, you just don’t train your butt at all, and you’ve got to start doing that because I know one thing. I think we can all agree we’re always looking at each other’s butts, so come on. Let’s get suited up. I’m going to show you the hip thrust workout.
What you need to do is on the couch, on a chair or on a bench like me, place your hands across your chest. Make sure that your heels and your knees are in alignment. What we’re going to do here is drop your hips, bring your hips up, contract your glutes as hard as you can and then release lowering your hips to the floor. You’re going to do this probably about 25 to up to 50 repetitions, believe it or not.
Hey guys, we’re going to toughen it up a little bit here. I’ve got a way to make the hip thrust even more challenging. Check it out. Same set up here. Heel, knee, drop your hips, one foot in the air, thrust your hips contracting the glute as hard as you can until you can’t seize any more. Drop the hips and repeat. You want to do that for both right and left.
Last, but not least, these are going to get easy. Eventually, you’re going to be up to 100 reps. You’re going to have to put some weight on. My favorite: resistance. 2 dumbbells. Take your weight. Same set up. Make sure the dumbbells are right over your hips and thrust and thrust. What an isolation.
There you have it guys. That’s the hip thrust, one of the best ways to isolate your glutes. Dudes, if you want to get more than a glance on your buns, maybe even a hot stare that will make your ass burn, you’ve got to start doing this.
