Often times we see lifters who have either recently hurt their backs or knees from bad mechanics or have chronic low back or knee pain from a previous injury.
Often times the glutes and the rest of the hip stabilizers have some kind of dysfunction which causes excess stress and improper loading of the low back and knees, causing pain and injury. The hip thrust, popularized by Bret Contreras (https://bretcontreras.com/) is a great tool to address and eliminate this dysfunction.
But recently we started using Mark Bell’s hip circle while we do this exercise to cue the other external rotators and stabilizers of the hip that may not necessarily be used as much in the movement. The difference can definitely be felt. Try it out!
As I side note – we have no affiliation with Mark Bell or his products. We just waned to mention them because everything we’ve used has been excellently made and very practical.
