The glute pull-through is a great exercise for the hip extensors. When using a cable, clients have a tendency to hyperextend the spine and overuse their arms.
A better approach initially is to use a resistance band, which takes the arms out of the equation and allows clients to focus on the hip drive.
Once you max out with the horizontal resistance of the bands, you can add vertical loading with dumbbells.
Essentially, the movement becomes a hybrid between a glute pull-through and a semi-stiff-leg deadlift. Give it a shot!
To your success,
