In the video below, Suzanne Digre from WorkoutNirvana shares a tip for taking a basic hip thrust to the next level, eccentric style!
Here’s a recap of Suzanne’s tips:
- Master the hip thrust first – Before jumping into the eccentric hip thrust, you should have the traditional hip thrust mastered. Having the proper foundation and knowledge is key to preventing injury and getting the most out of the eccentric hip thrust.
- Release slowly – After you thrust your hips up, contract your glutes tightly. Then count for 2-4 seconds while slowly lowering yourself down.
- Don’t arch your back – As you lower yourself down, be careful not to arch your back. Arching your back puts too much stress on your hips, which can cause damage over time.
