    I am wondering about the "Hip Thrusts" are they better done from a bench or from the floor?

    I've done them from the floor, from a bench and from the leg extension machine. For me, I feel it more from the bench, then the extension machine and lastly from the ground. But I can push twice as much weight from the floor.

    OK thanks, I do them from a bench and I definitely feel the burn but I saw a girl doing them from the floor and thought maybe that was a better option. I will try the other options and use whatever one burns more during the exercise but so far the bench is great!

    Thanks

    Brett Contreras says that both have their place in a program. Glute Bridges (from the floor) allow you to use more weight on the bar, while Hip Thrusts (from the bench) allow for a greater range of motion.
