Audio from the Stability Ball Bridge Exercise
Next we’ve got the stability ball bridge. A stability ball bridge works into the buttocks, the glute muscles. It works into the core area. It’s a good exercise, and it’s one that some people find a little bit more tricky than they think when they see it being demonstrated. Here we go.
Lie down on the floor. You will bend your knees so they’re at 90 degrees to the floor. Put the soles of your feet on the ball, hands on the floor. You can either have your palms down or palms up. It’s up to you. From here, you’re going to push the hips in the air, squeeze the glutes, the buttocks, nice and tight. Then we come all the way down. Don’t rest on the floor, just go as low as possible, and then back up again. Back down. One more time. Squeeze. There you go.
That’s the stability ball bridge, powerful exercise, even works the hamstrings as well. Keep the core nice and tight. Take your time. Don’t rush through it. You’ve got 20 to do in total.
