    The glute bridge is one of my absolute favorite exercises! It targets the glutes like none other when done correctly. Focus on squeezing your butt together throughout the entire movement and especially at the top! This is the exercise I tell everyone to do when they are working on learning proper squatting form so that they can learn to engage the glute muscle and strengthen them very easily. You want to feel that burn!
