how to do the glute bridge.

glute bridge

Toning your glutes lifts your rear view back up to where God intended it! The glute bridge is a simple move, but done correctly it allows for very concentrated and effective work.

how to do glute bridges.

Start on your back near a couch or bench. Place your heels hip-width apart on the edge of your bench and position yourself so that you can almost reach your heels with your fingertips. Focus on pulling the belly button into the spine to keep your abs tight. Inhale, flex the glutes, exhale, and press your hips up as high as possible. Keeping the glutes flexed as tightly as you can throughout the move, hold at the top and then lower the hips back to the ground.

technique & proper body mechanics for glute bridges.

You should not feel this move in your back muscles. Be sure you are keeping your abs tight and not arching your back.

If having your feet up on a bench is too difficult, start with a basic glute bridge with your feet hip-width apart flat on the floor. Everything else is the same.

If you want to kick it up a notch, try lifting with one leg at a time. Hold one leg up in the air or cross one ankle over the opposite knee while the planted leg does the lifting. Be sure to work both sides and don’t use your free leg for momentum.

Using a chair for support if needed, squeeze one leg at a time up to the chest and then bend one leg at a time behind you up to the buttocks to release the leg muscles.
