Hip belt squats unique is that they offer a loaded bilateral squatting pattern without loading the spine, making it an appealing option for working around injuries. Back-pain sufferers often struggle with the spinal compression and shear that comes from axial loading. Hip belt squats circumvent this as the hips and legs take on the lion's share of the load.
The glute bridge and hip thrust are assistance exercises often used in an effort to strengthen the glutes for the squat.
