Nautilus Plate Loaded Strength Equipment

Nautilus Glute Drive – The Nautilus Glute Drive is a commercial-rated plate-loaded gym machine designed for safe and effective execution of the hip thrust exercise to improve strength, speed, and power in the glute and hip muscles. Inspired by the increasing trend of glute exercises seen in various and dangerous executions in the gyms today, the Nautilus Glute Drive safely and smartly isolates your glutes, building power through a strong hip bridge motion, creating sexy glutes, improved hip and core stability. These benefits are universally desirable, important for a wide variety of sports and exercises, and are arguably the most important muscles for total athleticism. Whether you are trying to build superhuman strength like the pioneer of the modern-day hip thrust Bret Contreras, or you are just trying to shape and tone your glutes, the Nautilus Glute Drive delivers results. The plate loaded hip thruster machine is easy to set up, easy to get into because of its industrial grade seat belt, and safe on the back because of an articulating back pad that supports the entire length of the spine and promotes a proper hip hinging motion. With a small footprint, compatibility with Olympic weight plates and resistance bands, and ability to be used by exercisers of any age or fitness level, this "butt blaster" machine is a game changer. It will quickly and easily become the most used piece of equipment in any gym.

What are the benefits of the Nautilus Glute Drive vs. traditional hip thrust exercise? – The hip thrust is the exercise that everyone is doing (or should be doing) in gyms today, and has rapidly become the hottest social media trend in fitness. The glutes are the most powerful muscles in your body, designed to extend the hip and pull the leg behind the body. If your glutes are underdeveloped, your strength, power, and speed are all compromised for sports performance and functional movement. The barbell hip thrust exercise is performed using a low bench, or alternatively from the floor (known as the barbell glute bridge exercise). The exerciser will place a Olympic bar loaded with weight plates directly on the upper thigh, directly below the pelvic region. To help relieve the pressure from the barbell, a towel or foam squat pad is commonly used across the lap. Performing the hip thrust exercise can be tricky, since the exerciser has to get under a loaded bar, maneuver it into position, and then control the weight during the course of the exercise. The exercise itself can be limited in workload potential depending on how much weight the exerciser can not only control, but withstand from feeling crushed beneath the load. And, the hip thrust exercise not only ties up an Olympic bar and bench from use by other gym members, but also takes up a ton of space during execution. Created by innovator Pete Holman to solve these very issues, the patented Nautilus Glute Drive gives you the full benefits of the hip thrust exercise, simply, safely, and with good form. The machine is designed to promote good biomechanics and balanced weight curve. A comfortable padded belt secures the user to the back pad which supports the full length of the spine for added safety. Users can load up to four 45 pound Olympic plates on each side, which gives the machine a max weight load of 360 lbs. Best of all, the Glute Drive contains the exercise within a compact, safe zone, and even allows weight plate storage for convenience and organization with the optional rear storage rack.
