Back Exercises: Bridge

The Bridge exercise strengthens your abdominal, buttocks, and hamstring muscles. This helps keep your back stable and aligned when you walk.

  • Lie on the floor with your back and palms flat. Bend your knees. Keep your feet flat on the floor.

  • Contract your abdominal and buttocks muscles. Slowly lift your buttocks off the floor until there is a straight line from your knees to your shoulders.

  • Hold for 5  seconds. Repeat 10 times.
