Primary Muscles Worked: Glutes
Not only is the glute bridge great for strengthening your backside muscles, but it is also beneficial for improving core stabilization through hip extension. This will help in prevention of lower back pain because the lumbar spine is stabilized during this exercise- which reduces strain on the lower back. Be sure that shoulders remain on the ground and both arms extended on each side for stability.
1. Lie your back flat on the floor with your hands at your sides and your knees bent.
2. Your feet should be shoulder width apart.
3. While keeping your feet stabilized on the floor, push up your hips off the floor and exhale simultaneously.
4. Hold this position for 1-2 seconds before lowering your torso to the starting position and inhaling simultaneously.
5. Repeat for 60 seconds.
