The bridge is a power move that will strengthen your core, glutes, and hamstrings.
Between reps, re-engage your core and bring awareness to your feet. Pressure points should favor your heels. Important to note is that you’re tight in the lower, mid back and shoulder regions – so this is the extent of your bridge. Grab a pal to help you reach a full range of motion. Watch Gregg’s Bridge video to learn more.
The Set Up & Execution
• Lie on your back and position your feet hip-width apart.
• Hands at your side or extended out to the side.
• The closer your feet to your buttocks, the easier the move.
• As you get stronger, move your feet further away.
• Make sure that you engage your core by connecting it completely with the mat.
• Lift your torso up to create a bridge.
• Hold for a beat…then release.
Be sure to watch Gregg’s introduction and key execution principles of the bridge.
So let’s make sure you get green checks on these key points:
• Re-engage core before each rep.
• Lift as one unit and lower down through the spine.
• Squeeze the glutes hard at the top.
• Extend one leg out for Level II.
• Reward yourself with a massage of your lower back.
