    There are so many good things to say about the glute bridge! The glutes are generally the hardest muscle to figure out HOW to use. You may think you're using your glutes but most of the time the quadriceps will over compensate for them because of lack of strength. But when you do the glute bridge they are definitely being activated and used! I recommend going slow, pausing at the top and squeezing your butt together. Make it burn!
