The BC Strength Thruster Pad Bar is a highly specialized bar, with an attached back pad, designed for the hip thrust exercise. The unique design of the bar provides a hip thrusting experience that is complementary to the barbell hip thrust. With your back resting on the pad, and the torso hinging around the bar, the erectors are removed from the equation and the movement is felt mostly in the glutes. Even with significantly lighter loads, users report a similar exertion to using heavier loads as the Thruster Pad Bar concentrates the tension exactly where required.
