Floor Bridge Exercise by Laurie Nuyens, Total Health Systems

Okay, okay. So we’re going to do a floor bridge. Floor bridge is for working on your gluts, your hamstrings and your back. You’re getting your back and your abs to work together as a team. What’s important with your floor bridge is the position of your feet. You want to make sure that your feet aren’t too far out in front of you, that your knees are right over your ankles. And you’re going to squeeze your gluts, push through your heels and raise your hips and make sure you keep some space between your chin and your chest. Lower your hips down, don’t quite touch the floor. Squeeze your gluts and lift back up. There are a lot of things to think about. Push through your heels, squeeze your gluts and then check, what are your knees doing? Your knees should not be going out to the side and they should not be kissing either. They should be pointed straight ahead, along with your toes. Every time you come up, squeeze those gluts. There’s a difference between doing the exercise and really working the exercise. Be very aware of what muscles are working. Focus on those butt cheeks, feel those hamstrings doing the work and keep your abs engaged.
