How to do Glute Bridge

Glute Bridge

Step 1: Start by laying on your back with your feet firmly planted on the floor, bending your knees at a 90 degree angle.

Step 2: Slowly lift your hips up off the floor and squeeze your glutes. Your body should make a straight line from your knees to your shoulders! Hold, return to the starting position and repeat.

Glute Bridge Benefits

  • The target muscle group of the glute bridge exercise is the hip muscles. You can include it in your exercise program to tighten and tone the hip muscles as well as improve hip mobility and strengthen your waist.
  • Strengthens core muscles: The bridge exercise activates all the core muscles, including the transverse abdominis, rectus abdominis, and obliques. The glute bridge will help you stabilize the center of the body, hamstrings, back, belly and also the butt. Although the exercise targets the butt area, the glute bridge does a great job of activating and strengthening your core stabilizer muscles.
  • Bridge exercises are generally safe for people with chronic back problems and can aid in pain management.
