The bridge.

image

Lay on your back with your hands by your sides, your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. (UNLIKE MY PIC WHERE MY HANDS ARE UP LOL)

Make sure your feet are under your knees.

Tighten your abdominal and buttock muscles.

Raise your hips up to create a straight line from your knees to shoulders.

Squeeze your core and try to pull your belly button back toward your spine.If your hips sag or drop, lower yourself back on the floor.

The goal is to maintain a straight line from your shoulders to your knees and hold for 20 to 30 seconds. You may need to begin by holding the bridge position for a few seconds as you build your strength. It’s better to hold the correct position for a shorter time than to go longer in the incorrect position.
