Barbell Glute Bridge

Step 1

Start by lying 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. Lay a barbell across your hip bones, holding it with an overhand grip (palms facing towards your body). This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Exhale. Press your heels into the mat, activate your glutes and raise your pelvis off the floor until your body forms one straight line from chin to knee, resting on your shoulders.

Step 3

Inhale. Lower your pelvis to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
