I always enjoy observing how other trainers and coaches train glutes with their clients and athletes, so I thought up this series to share with my readers. It’s nice to see training clips involving a broad range of clientele, so I intend on highlighting methods used with everyday Joes and Janes in addition to collegiate and professional athletes.
I was tipped off about Ben Woods, owner of STA Sports Performance by Strong by Bret members Kristen and Emily, who recently met up to train there. STA uses some novel and solid techniques to hammer the glutes and increase sports performance, and I highly encourage you to take a look at some of their methods:
Check out Kristen slaying some belt squat machine hip thrusts:

And Emily deftly demonstrating this wicked move. If you have access to a belt squat machine you should definitely give these a try:

If you don’t have a belt squat machine, you can mimic some of these moves while wearing a dip belt with weight attached. It’s not quite the same, but beneficial nonetheless. I may film a separate video showing these down the road.
I get really fired up watching these highlight vids. I hope you find them as inspiring as I do and I look forward to sharing the next one.
