Barbell Hip Thrust

Barbell Hip Thrusts Benefits

  • The target muscle group of the barbell hip thrusts exercise is the hip muscles. But the barbell hip thrust exercise activates all the core muscles, including the transverse abdominis, rectus abdominis, and obliques.
  • The barbell hip thrusts will help you stabilize the center of the body, hamstrings, back, belly and also the hip muscles.
  • Although the exercise targets the butt area, the hip thrusts does a great job of activating and strengthening your core stabilizer muscles. Also, this exercise is generally safe for people with chronic back problems and can help with pain management.

You can include it in your exercise program to tighten and tone the hip muscles as well as improve hip mobility and strengthen your waist.
