Band Kneeling Hip Thrusts

Video from Bret Contreras

Becoming a fan of this as a warm up/”activation” exercise, relatively easy to set up and less space requirement than a (supine) barbell hip thrust.
It gets extra merit as, since it helps ‘switch on’ the glutes, it may help prevent anterior femoral glide. This is where the head of the femur moves forward in the acetabulum during hip extension due to the hamstrings ‘overpowering’ the glutes. Resulting in hip pain and (eventually) injury.
