Dumbbell Hip Thrust

Place your feet hip width apart and not too far away from your body, when you press up it should make about a 90 degree angle. Place the dumbbell just below your hips and hold it in place with your hands through the exercise. Its very important to make sure you are not arching your back as you thrust up and also to not let it arch as you bring the weight down. I find it helps me to lift my toes a bit and really push through my heels to make sure I am isolating my glutes as much as possible.

 

Sumo Squat 

Position your feet in a wide stance a few inches outside your shoulders with your toes pointed slight outward, doing this will help force your knees out. You never want your knees to be caving in at any time, you also don’t want your knees coming over your toes. Sit back into your heels as you squat down. Brace your core and keep your chest up with your chin tucked, this will help keep your spine in aline and keep your back from arching. Hold the dumbbell with both hands in-between your legs and relax your arms.

 

Bulgarian to Deadlift

Stand 2 to 3 feet in front of a knee-high platform or bench and position your right leg behind you resting your foot flat on the bench. Slowly lower down towards the ground and back up. From here you are going to keep a slight bend in your leg and and bring the dumbbells down towards your foot. Make sure you are pushing your hips back and getting a good stretch through your glutes and hamstrings. Alternate between the split squat and deadlift each time.

 

Heel Elevated Goblet Squat

Stand the dumbbell up on its side and position your heels together on top of it. (you can also use a weight plate or wedge if that’s more comfortable) Position the other dumbbell in your palms comfortably and hold it close to your chest under your chin. Keep your chest up and your torso upright. Make sure you are pushing your knees out and not letting them cave in, I point my toes slightly out to help this. If you have never done this exercise before, don’t hold the weight until you feel comfortable.
