Glute bridge

The glute bridge is a popular lower-body bodyweight exercise that primarily targets the glutes, but also activates the lower back and hamstrings. It can be performed with body weight alone, or with added resistance such as barbells, dumbbells, or bands. It can be performed for time or reps and works perfectly in a dynamic warm-up for lower-body training, but can also be performed for glute activation anytime.


  1. Great for a warm-up prior to squats or deadlifts
  2. Can help reduce lower-back pain and strengthen the glutes
  3. Doesn't require equipment
  4. Can be made more difficult by manipulating tempo or adding pauses
