THE HIP-THRUST IS OVERRATED!!
Now... Let me clarify first, the Hip-Thrust is a great Exercise for Glutes, but it is NOT the best.. Or second best!🧐
Firstly there’s less Time Under Tension throughout the entire movement compared to an RDL, or a Squat. In the Hip Thrust, the Tension & Resistance peaks when the Hip’s are level with the Knee’s!
In both an RDL & Squat, the minute you initiate the movement the Glutes SHOULD (read below👇🏻) be under constant Tension and through a larger Range Of Motion due to the increased Hip Flexion that movement provides!🍑
Secondly, it has been popularised by many because they feel a great Contraction in their Glutes during the Hip-Thrust, but that’s because the majority of people don’t know how to engage their Glutes properly in the Squat (I don’t mean Squeezing them at the top of the movement, don’t do that!!) and don’t take a few minutes to Activate their Glutes at the beginning of their Workout!
Some don’t know the differences between Squat variations to target the Glutes! (You can learn by reading a few posts below👇🏻)
Moral of the story, don’t neglect the oldest Tools in the Shed just because some new fancy ones came out, the old ones are still the best... When you know how to use them!😉
