    Hi coach,

    I was wondering how the mechanics of the hip thrust work. So we put the weight on our hips and it stays there throughout as we go from hip flexion to extension. Then isn’t the moment arm to our hip joints almost 0 from start to finish? I was wondering how we get torque on our glutes from this setup. Also when I do hip thrusts I feel like it’s overloading more on glute contraction so I was wondering how I can explain this from torque. As always appreciate the excellent responses!!
