Tips and Strategy

Make sure that you are engaging your abs through Frog Pumps and Glute Bridges as it can be easy to overextend the lower back in these movements. If you are feeling your lower back get tight through the workout make sure to slow down, check your form, or scale the exercise back so we feel the burn in the legs and hips.

Intended Stimulus

Should be a relentless blast to the glutes. The variety of angles we use to hit the glutes should allow you to keep pushing through the 15 minutes.

Movement Standards

Frog Pump: Lay on the ground with your back flat on the ground and feet together just like in Butterfly Sit-Ups. Lift your hips from the ground with your upper back still planted on the ground. Lift your hips all the way up then lower them down for one repetition.

Single-Leg Glute Bridge: Lay on the ground with your back flat on the ground and feet close to the hips. Raise one leg fully extended while the other foot stays on the ground. Lift your hips towards the sky and down to the ground for one repetition.

Scaling

Add a weight across your lap for frog pumps and glute bridges if you have it. Sub to double leg glute bridges if you cannot reach full hip extension on every rep.
