The Hip Thrust

I meant to explain this in another post and forgot. Oops.

Okay, so many of you know what a hip thrust is, some may not. The hip thrust that I speak of, is probably a little different than what you are used to seeing. My first trainer, the one that got me into lifting and literally changed my life, invented a butt machine called the Skorcher. This machine is AWESOME and ROCKS my booty. Most gyms don’t have a Skorcher, so I pull two benches parallel to eachother and do them that way.

A hip thrust looks like this:


You can also put a barbell on your lap and thrust with weight. That is what I typically do. There are also single leg variations etc. but if you are looking for a killer glute exercise, this one takes the cake.

These are the heavy hip thrusts I was talking about in my last post. I did about 5 sets and used a barball with 2 10’s on each side for a total of 85 pounds.(When I used to do these regularly, I was thrusting 155 pounds!! Gotta build my strength up….although my glute size hasn’t seemed to go down HAHA. Do not be fooled people, I may have no boobs, but I do have an ass. Ghet-to boo-tay.)

Start building your glutes!! For more info on some great glute exercises, feel free to shoot me an e-mail at My old trainer was a butt-obsessed man and taught me a LOT of great exercises.
