Thank you Log in to reply Nicole says: October 18, 2017 at 5:09 pm There are not a lot of exercises that are better than a hip thrust. However, you could do lunges or squats to target your glutes.

Is there something I should be doing differently? My lap currently looks like someone rode a road bike across it and its not that big of a deal. Thank goodness for cooler temperatures and longer hemlines. Thank you! Log in to reply Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply. You must be logged in to post a comment.
