Glute Hamstring Supine Band Kick Rebound

Glute Ham Sup Bnd Kick Reb

Coaching Points:

  • Setup: Lie on your back with your feet placed on top of resistance bands. Position your feet hip-width apart and parallel to each other. The bands should be securely anchored to a stable object or held by a partner.
  • Bridge movement: Engage your glutes. Press your heels into the bands and lift your hips off the ground, creating a bridge position on your back. Ensure that your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees.
  • Leg extension: With your legs straight, keep your toes pointed away from your body to activate the muscles in the back of your legs (hamstrings).
  • Glute activation: Focus on using your glutes to control the movement. Initiate the leg extension by pulling down with your glute muscles, feeling the contraction in your glutes and hamstrings.
  • Band tension: Kicks should be bouncing off the band, having to propel your foot back down each time for each kick.
  • Alignment and stability: Pay attention to your body alignment. Keep your hips level and avoid excessive rotation or tilting. Focus on maintaining stability by using your arms to stabilize and keeping your head down.
