Barbell Support For Hip Thrust
The Barbell Supports are an important accessory of the Hip Thrust Platform Bench, that are able to substantially increase the usability of this tool. That is why we strongly recommend them, even if they may seem unusual compared to the normal and very uncomfortable habit of starting the exercise with the barbell leaned on the legs.
85 cm long and 30 cm high, the Barbell Supports for the Hip Thrust are made in painted steel and they are characterized by a sturdy nylon-made edging that feature 4 recesses that prevent the barbell from freely coming out. These features allow to lean and safely slide the barbell on the supports, facilitating also the loading process (as the plates don’t touch the ground), the starting phase of the exercise (that doesn’t start from a disadvantageous position) and, importantly, the entering and exiting of the user (you just need to slide horizontally the barbell on the supports so as to be free to enter or to exit from the Hip Thrust Platform Bench).
From a technical point of view, the Hip Thrust Platform Bench provided with Barbell Supports is also really helpful in the correct execution of the movement, as it reduce the common and spontaneous mistake of performing the exercise through wide movements that involve also the back and the legs. Indeed, the Hip Thrust implies a very limited ROM (range of motion), so as to isolate the movement of the hip and to avoid an excessive lowering (that would involve the ankles and the legs) or uplift (that would involve the back).
The presence of the Barbell Supports completely impedes the first mistake (excessive lowering), and this removes also the premise to the second mistake (the excessive uplift is a consequence of the elevated inertia due to the wideness of the movement).
