The glute bridge is a simple but effective exercise to increase mobility and build your glutes.
The glute bridge has a couple different names, but works the same way regardless of what it is called.
1. Setup: Lie on your back with your feet planted on the ground with your heels directly below your knees and arms along your sides.
2. LiftTo initiate the movement, lift your pelvis up toward the ceiling, tightening your core and glutes, until you create a straight line from your knees along your torso and to your shoulders.
3. LowerSlowly lower your pelvis back down to the floor and repeat for 15-20 reps.
The bridge can be a great exercise to warm up the hip and core region, but can also be intensified by adding weight on top of your core during the movement.
