    pelvic hip thrust or bridge okay for pregnant women?

    Have a client in the 2nd trimester and for the past month I have done zero exercises lying on her back or on her stomach, but I see so many women doing bridges and hip thrusts for glute strength. I have a studio so I have no seated hamstring curl machines or anything like that.

    Limited somewhat to cable hip extensions, jungle gym hip extensions, standing hamstring curls and a few others. I figure doing hip thrusts off the bench would not apply any direct pressure to the low back/glute area so would that be fine? Her balance and everything has been fine although I haven't really challenged it, I believe a swiss ball hip thrust may be too unstable for her as most of what i read encourages me to take away balance challenging exercises from the routine.

    Why not do a ball/hack squat or lunges to strengthen the glutes? You could also do a standing hip thrust too.

    Technically, she should not be flat on her back by the 2nd trimester.

    These are excellent exercises for postpartum recovery but by-the-book, no, they are not supposed to be done in pregnancy. For glute strength in pregnancies, I found squats and kettlebell swings work best around the growing belly. Simple lunges (keeping a box for balance if needed) also work well.

    According to ACSM, all supine exercises should be avoided after the first trimester.
