Beginning Dumbbell Hip Thrust Bench
Sit on the ground with a bench behind you, bending your knees to keep your feet planted on the ground and a barbell sitting below your hips. If you have a padded bar or anything to place between the bar and your body, it will make the exercise much more comfortable.
Dumbbell Hip Thrust Bench Movement
1. Lean back on the bench with your shoulders on the bench and the bar above your hips.
2. Lift the bar by driving your hips up. Your knees should be bent at 90 degrees and your shoulders at the top of the bench in the highest position, with your body forming a straight line between them. Squeeze your glutes as you come to a halt at the top of the lift, then slowly descend your hips.
