About this deal
If you’re a hip thrust belt manufacturer and want your product reviewed and included in this article, please get in touch. The hip thrust is a good glute-focused exercise to increase muscle growth and further hip extension abilities for more complex and compound movements like squats, deadlifts, and even jogging (to name a few). Strength and Power Athletes However, if it becomes too much, there is a strong chance they are not extending their hips fully and/or their knees are not bent enough. You want to feel your hamstrings only a little during the movement. Adductors
The aim of the current study was to perform the first comprehensive biomechanical analysis of the barbell hip thrust, quantifying the external and musculoskeletal demand of this exercise to offer scientists, coaches and athletes novel information to inform training practice. The results of this study demonstrated that the hip thrust places a large and significantly greater extensor demand bilaterally on the hip joint compared to the knee and pelvic-trunk joints, allowing the first hypothesis to be accepted. However, against contemporary belief [ 4, 5, 7, 10], the magnitude of hip extensor moment was not constant during the lift ( Fig 4), but instead diminished throughout the hip extension range of motion and reached a local minimum as the hip joint approached full extension. The second study hypothesis was therefore rejected.Fry AC, Smith C, Schilling BK. Effect of Knee Position of Hip and Knee Torques During the Barbell Squat. The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. 2003;17(4):629–633. pmid:14636100 And there are lots of good reasons for this, with benefits of hip thrusts including its nearly unparallel ability to target the glutes and hip extensors. In contrast to the ankle joint, dominant extensor moments were observed at the knee, hip and pelvic-trunk joints throughout ( Fig 4). Unsurprisingly given the nature of the exercise, magnitudes of extensor moment properties were significantly greater bilaterally at the hip joint compared with the knee and trunk-pelvic joints, whilst significantly greater magnitudes were also observed at the pelvic-trunk joint compared with the knee (Tables 2 and 3, Fig 5). Although the knee joint elicited the smallest magnitudes of extensor moment and impulse in the current study, average magnitudes of unilateral peak extensor moment (1.34 ± 0.35 N m·kg -1, Table 2) were comparable with those previously observed during the straight- (0.80 N m·kg -1) and hexagonal- (1.46 N m·kg -1) bar deadlift against the same 70% 1RM external load [ 19, 20]. Therefore, whilst the hip thrust preferentially loads the hip extensors (as expected), there is also considerable demand placed on the knee extensors during the lift. This demand is supported by previous evidence demonstrating high levels of quadriceps muscle activation during the hip thrust exercise [ 7], and may indicate a requirement to stabilise the knee joint through a relatively small range of motion (20 ± 7°, Table 2).
Whether you do hip thrusts at home or at the gym, the hip thrust belt is going to help you build that booty and actually enjoy doing it!Suchomel TJ, Nimphius S, Stone MH. The Importance of Muscular Strength in Athletic Performance. Sports Medicine. 2016;46(10):1419–1449. pmid:26838985
