Activity: Spinal stability: bridge, isolated from other core muscles

4-2e

Summary:

A basic bridge exercise working on posterior chain muscles (glutes, hamstrings, spinal extensors)

Description:

  • laying on back, knees bent, feet flat on the floor
  • while keeping the spine neutral, gradually lift your pelvis to come up into a bridge
  • hold for up to 5 seconds, then lower
  • repeat as instructed.
  • use band around thighs to increase gluteus medius activity (if instructed to do so)
NOTE:if you need to reduce hamstring activity, gently press your heels into the floor and away from you (encouraging quadriceps can inhibit hamstrings). If you wish to increase hamstring activity, gently press your heels into the floor and towards you.
