Do you want to know one of the most powerful core and leg exercises? Wouldn’t it be a relief knowing it is a simple floor exercise? Then I believe you’ll really appreciate the simplicity of the floor bridge. Here are my basic instructions on to do the floor bridge the right way.

How to Do a Floor Bridge

  1. Lie on the ground with your arms out to the sides, knees bent and your feet placed flat on the floor.
  2. Press your pelvis up and hold when your torso is 45┬░ from the floor.
  3. Raise your heels, squeeze your butt and tighten your abs for a 3-count.
  4. Gradually lower your heels and butt back to the ground.
  5. Repeat this movement sequence.

For more of a challenge, try holding the top position for 30-60 seconds. That’s it for today! Go back and check out the other leg exercise blog posts:
