Nice strength on the hip thrusts, I myself started doing them recently since I'm not DLing.
how come you do them?
Also do you let the weight rest at the bottom like a DL or is it in the air the whole set? I've been doing them all in one go but I saw Bret Contreras doing them with dead stops.
There's this grill at my gym who does these with 4 plates and you could drown between her gloots hnnnnng

gotta get them jooooocey glutes mane ;) just because i don't feel squats work the glutes enough but hip thrusts do have transfer to squats. gonna slow down the progression now im at 2x BW. i don't think it makes a difference how you do them, I just try not to use my lower back (hyperextending aint bout that life) and keeping constant tension plus a 10s pause on the last rep gets a nice burn in dem dere glutes.
