many people are doing it wrong! If you are going for height and you are extending up through your back- you are doing it wrong. This is using your back more than your glutes, it's also causing you to extend your ribs up into the air which keeps the ribs from being stacked over the pelvis and can be bad for those with split abs.
*The picture below is probably actually a depiction of a yoga stretch which is fine but many people do this when they are practicing glute bridges, so I thought it would get the point across*
- Pelvis should be neutral (think pubic bone and hip bones in the same plane)
- Ribs should be stacked over pelvis, do not let them flare up to the ceiling
- If you feel your back hinging up or if you feel it in your back, you are probably doing it wrong
- Drop your butt down a bit (don't go for height) and see if you feel your glutes fire on more
