Hip Raise

The hip raise builds strength and stability in the hips. The movement also increases strength in the core, glutes, and hamstrings. Your glutes are your largest lower body muscle, and they are essential to all lower body movements and fat burning. Because of desk jobs, most people have trouble activating their glutes making the glutes bridge very important for total body performance.
