Hip thrusts are probably the best for building strength and mass to the gluteus muscle group. If you are not yet strong enough to use a barbell, start using body weight and more add weight as your strength increases.

Main Muscles: Gluteus Maximus & Hamstrings

Key Points:
– Rest the bar across your pelvis
– Keep the back of your shoulders on the floor
– Extend the nonworking leg out and keep it off of the floor
– Drive your heel through the floor and push your hips as high as possible
