Glut Bridge

The glut bridge is a good exercise for developing the muscles of your buttocks (Gluts) and abdominals.

Lie on your back, bringing one foot 12 - 18 inches away from your buttock, whilst the other foot needs to be crossed over that leg, resting on the outer knee.

cross one leg over the other at the knee smoothly raise your buttocks off the floor

Keeping your arms extended out to your sides to aid balance (avoid pushing up with your arms), smoothly lift your buttocks off the floor, aiming to make a straight line through your knee - hip and shoulder with the leg that has the foot on the floor.

Initate the movement using your glut muscles, by contracting them tightly as you slowly raise up. Aim to keep this position for 5 - 10 seconds prior to returning back down under control and repeating.

Stretch and Warm Up before you commence any exercise and aim to finish with some good stretching to let your body and mind recover.
