Welcome to Fitness Friday. Each week I share an exercise that I’ve found really and truly works.
The exercise for this week is the bridge. You’ll feel this working your core, back, glutes, and legs.
Simply holding this position is a great exercise.
Another variation is to start in the original position, come up and hold for a few seconds, and then come back down but pause so that you are still engaged and your bottom is not quite on the mat. Pause for a few seconds…
Hold. Bring your leg down to the original bridge positions. Hold. Then repeat with the opposite leg. (In the picture below, my hips should be up more. My photographer took the picture as I was lowering down while holding my leg up.)
On a side note, can I tell you how much I love the two tops that I am wearing? They are the same top, one in pink and one in black. What I love about them is that they have completely flat seams and the built in shelf bra is only one piece of fabric instead of the usual two pieces with elastic. If you are interested, both tops are on sale. (Warning – if you are large busted, this top wouldn’t give you enough support.)
