When performing a hip thrust, as with any exercise, form is most important. Make sure to avoid excessive arching of your back. This can happen if you’re holding too much weight. Try not to tilt your neck down. Maintain a neutral cervical spine when you thrust your hips up. Look up at the ceiling always helps. When you raise your hips, keep your feet flat on the ground. Don’t raise your heels. Keep your head, neck and tailbone in the same line. Keep a neutral spine as well.
As always, if you’re unsure of the proper form ask a fitness professional to help you out. Good luck!
