This month on Trainer Tip Tuesday we will be discussing tips and tricks for when you are doing hip extensions from an angled bench.

This is one of the most popular exercises done to build, strengthen, and tone the butt muscles; however, there are some intricacies that need to be kept in mind when doing this exercise to make sure it is effectively targeting your glutes and not stressing your low back.

One consideration that needs to be kept in mind is how high you are positioning the pad on the bench when you use it to do hip extension. There is a right spot to place the pad that will help you focus the exercise on building and toning your glutes, while other pad placements will end up causing your lower back to do the majority of the work.

So where exactly should the pad be placed when you are doing hip extensions? That is exactly what we are discussing in this week’s video.

Check out all of the details in this week’s episode of Trainer Tip Tuesday, and be sure to tune back in next week as we discuss another consideration when doing hip extensions from an angled bench.
