Stiff leg deadlift
Glute Ham raises
Yep, that should cover it.

Honestly I haven't really found a comfortable way to do them. Right now I just use the crappy pad people use for squats. It provides no cushion since the bar slips through the gaps in padding. Seems like the pain subsides with repetition saw a video of Bret Contreras doing hip thrusters with either 405 or 495 no padding.Originally Posted by PROness
The set up shouldn't be that hard just a bench and a bar.
Where I train doesn't have a GHR and didn't particularly get as much out of it. With hip thrusters it is easy to target the glutes with heavy loads without a high level of technical difficulty.

The main problem with thrusters for me is that I'm too thick to get under the bar and i always find a way to almost flip the bench even when its braced against a power rack. Id like to try it consistently but its that movement i always manage to **** up.

Cut the weight in half and do single leg glute bridges.

I actually do that with a lat machine but I feel that in my hamstrings way more than glutes.Originally Posted by PROness
What you could do is have someone put the bar on for you. Just have to find a position that suits you. I rest my elbows on the bench. Start off with 135 to get used to it better.
It really isn't a technical lift. Have you watched any videos for it on youtube? My go to "guru" on hip thrusters would be Bret Contreras.

I did a leg routine today that gave me a killer glute & quad workout. It consisted of:
crossover reverse lunges - 12 on each leg
single leg squats - 12 on each leg
hip thrusts from a bench - 12
repeat 3 times
single leg deadlift w/ 15 lb weight - 12 on each leg
step up w/ knee raise - 12 on each leg
repeat 3 times
jumping lunges - 12 on each leg
scissor lunges - 24 total
repeat 3 times
I liked this workout b/c it totally works my quads, glutes, calves, hamstrings, lower back a little, and engages my abs. Plus, it's only 3 sets of the exercises so I felt like I was moving quickly.

wide stance squats
stiff legged deadlifts
weighted steps ups
weighted walking lunges
I usually do 4 sets of these 12-15 reps. High volume has been working great for me!
