This is a weekly series on exercise that will give you the biggest bang for your exercise buck in and out of the gym. Today’s exercise is isometric glute bridge
You should do this because- we sit on it most of the day (I’m sitting on it now) and it’s a easy way to strengthen one the most important muscles in the body.
This helps to actively stretch out hip flexors and improves hip mobility also.
Makes your everyday life easier because- not only will you look better in a pair of pants, good hip mobility reduces your likely hood of low back pain.
.
Form tips – Actively squeeze your glutes together in the top position, grip the floor with your feet and breathe normally. Hold for 30-60 seconds.
