This week I will be showing you how to do the Bridge exercise.
This week’s Bridge exercise is going to be really good for toning up our legs and butt and challenging our torso stability. At the clinic we have a lot of clients who suffer from weak and injured backs and would really benefit from doing some torso stabilizing exercises.
Bridging is the perfect exercise for toning the legs and buttocks. Exercising these muscles while stabilizing the torso also benefits the lower back by both strengthening weak areas and protecting it from future injury.

AVOID: Allowing your hips to sway back and forth.
Allowing your hips to sag.
BENEFITS: Torso stability, which benefits especially those people with weak or injured back.
That is me done for this week. I will see you next time.
