Technique Tips: Glute Bridges
Updated: Nov 25, 2020
Everybody is familiar with glute bridges, both as an activation movement and as an exercise!
Tip of the Day: Lift the toes when performing glute bridges. This will allow for greater posterior chain activation and limit the use of the quads in this movement. When you lift the toes, make sure the feet are still pointed straight forward, don’t allow the tibias to externally rotate; this will change the activation pattern and recruit more of the biceps femoris (lateral hamstring), resulting in an off-balance recruitment pattern.
