Barbell glute bridge

The barbell glute bridge is a popular exercise targeting the muscles of the glutes and hamstrings. It can be done as a strength movement on its own, as an activation drill or warm-up for lower-body training, or as a burnout at the end of a lower-body workout.


  1. Strengthens the glutes, hamstrings, and quads
  2. Allows you to track and periodize weights more easily than when using a band
  3. Builds strength that carries over into squats, deadlifts, and other movements
  4. Great warm-up or glute activation drill to do anytime
