Glute Bridge

What is a Glute Bridge?

The Glute Bridge is a lower-body exercise that tones your glutes, hamstrings and core. It is an easy exercise to do at home because it does not require any equipment — you simply lift and lower your hips to strengthen the targeted muscles.

How do you do a Glute Bridge?

  • Step 1

    Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet grounded on the mat. Place your arms beside you, hands flat on the floor.

  • Step 2

    Keeping your shoulders, arms and feet grounded, lift your hips until you create a straight line with your torso and thighs. Engage your glutes to maximize the strengthening exercise. Lower your hips to the mat, then repeat.

Expert opinion

I like the glute bridge because you can do it easily with little space and no equipment.

Everyone wants to have a nice butt, and this definitely helps with that. For a helpful hint, keep your core engaged and make sure to squeeze your glutes for maximum benefit as you do the glute bridge.
