Weighted Hip Thrusts
This is an important exercise in the Kim Kardashian booty workout. As we have written before, weighted hip thrusts are the mother of all booty building exercises so it comes as no shock that Kim are doing these. Her hip thrusts are done for 4 sets of 15.
Start by sitting down by the side of a bench or a box. Lean against it so it touches just under the back of your shoulders. Place your feet about shoulder width apart or slightly wider and so that when you are in the top position your shins points straight down towards the floor. Place a barbell in your lap, use a squat pad so the bar doesn’t hurt. When starting the movement, lift you pelvis up towards the ceiling while keeping the pressure under your heels.
