Introducing our 30-Day Glute Bridge Challenge!
So what is a glute bridge and what are the benefits?
If you want to target your glute muscles 🙋♀️, then this is the exercise for you. Glute bridges help strengthen your core, hips, thighs, hamstrings, and yep, they help you to achieve a round and perky butt, too! They are also great for correcting your posture and have been found to help with pains in the knee and lower back.
Here’s how to do a glute bridge:
You can do this exercise with or without weights.
- Lay on the floor. You can do this inside or outside.
- Bend your knees and keep your feet hip-width apart, and make sure they’re firmly on the ground.
- Lift your hips up off the ground until they are in a straight line with your knees and shoulders. Drive your feet into the ground as you lift up and squeeze your glutes. We recommend holding for one to two seconds at the top, while giving those glutes a big squeeze.
- Slowly bring your hips back down to the floor and start over.
Here are a few helpful tips:
- Don’t raise your hips too high as that may cause lower back strain.
- You may want to add in some stretches after you complete your set. Livestrong has some great moves to help limber up your hips, legs, and glutes for increased flexibility.
- If you’d like to do this exercise with weights, but don’t have dumbbells, get creative with what you do have on hand. Grab something from your pantry, office, or laundry room – maybe a jug of water, a bottle of laundry detergent, or some canned goods!
- As you get further along into the challenge, feel free to break up your glute bridges into smaller sets, that way it isn’t so overwhelming to try and cram in 100 plus in one round.

Your Day One starts now!
This challenge will start you off slowly but don’t worry, the intensity increases as we move through the 30 days. Focus on perfecting your form for the optimum effects of the move and you’ll be a glute bridge champ in no time! 👊
“I know what you’re thinking, “150 glute bridges? Hip2Save, are you mad?!” but I started my Day 1 by testing exactly how many glute bridges I could do in one sitting (or laying, I guess?) — I made it to 96 before I rolled over and said that’s enough for one day. 🤣
150 glute bridges by Day 30 will certainly be a challenge, but it is entirely attainable, especially if broken down into 2 or 3 sets to achieve the entire 150. We got this! 🙌 ” – Emily, Hip2Save Team Member
