Exercise ball hip thrust

The exercise ball hip thrust is a simple yet effective way to work the glutes and hamstrings. Proper form is essential to really feel the burn in the glutes, and the ball can help guide you into the right form better than a bench, which is the usual support for hip thrusts. Unlike the bench version, the ball hip thrust is best performed with body weight or bands as resistance for safety reasons. It can be an excellent component of a warm-up for lower-body training, or a glute activation drill performed anytime.


  1. Works the glutes and hamstrings
  2. Excellent warm-up before squats or deadlifts
  3. Works well unweighted or with bands
  4. Great way to hit the lower body outside of the gym
