Bridging Gluts

This exercise will help work both your abdominal and glut muscles if performed correctly, it's essential to initiate the move by clenching your gluts.

There are a variety of methods to perform this exercise, either 1 foot raised - both feet on a Swiss Ball - both feet flat on the floor - or by raising your feet off the floor this will increase the exercise difficulty.
 

FEET RAISED METHOD
BEGIN WITH BUTTOCKS ON THE FLOOR

Whichever method you adopt, begin in a position that has your buttocks on the floor, as you lift to take them and your lower back off the floor, focus on clenching your gluts tight together throughout the lift and lower, relaxing them only when back on the floor, prior to repeating the exercise.

Use your arms out by your sides to aid balance, rather than pushing down on the ground to aid with your up lift.

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