Hip Bridge Variations

on August 29, 2012

DIRECTIONS: The standard hip bridge starts in a supine position with knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Engage the core and the glutes to push the pelvis up off the ground until the spine is in a neutral decline, then return back to start.

Perform the move with one leg in the air.  Then switch legs.

Keep the tube pressed against the pelvis with the hands firmly on the ground, activate triceps isometrically.

REMINDERS:

• Press the shoulder blades into the ground and open the chest by external rotating the palms up

• Engage the core musculature throughout
• Relax the neck and jaw
 • B R E A T H E

MODIFICATIONS:
• To make this less intense, perform  at the lowest intensity (the first image shown above)
