HIP THRUST PLATFORM BENCH
Bench equipped with a platform for a practical execution of the Hip Thrust, an extraordinarily useful exercise for training the glute muscles, in particular when combined with squats, glute loops, and lunges. When performed on a free body workout with a barbell, it is also useful in exercising hip extension, a weak spot for most users’ functional movements, including athletes.
Nevertheless, the Hip Thrust could be considered an uncomfortable exercise, since it involves a long preparation: barbell, plates, barbell padding, and -possibly- a Hip Band must be gathered near a Flat Bench, usually adapted to support the back. The Hip Thrust Platform Bench represents a comfortable and straightforward solution to organize a work station dedicated to the Hip Thrust. Thanks to its technical characteristics and measures, it also facilitates the correct execution of the exercise.
The fixed semi-cylindrical padding allows the user to position himself steadily at a certain height without incurring in the frequent mistake of executing the thrust push by throwing back the torso, arching the back, ascending excessively with the hip, and then also descending too much through the action of the ankles.
The platform allows instead the correct positioning of the feet for the best stability. It aids in concentrating on the pelvis’s retroversion and anteversion movements, on the short swing/motion, and the “squeeze,” without distractions deriving from the instability of the supports.
The Hip Thrust Platform Bench has six hooks for elastic bands, which can be used with and without a barbell. Plus, it counts with handle and rubber wheels for smoother handling and transport.
