As I say on my fitness plans page: “you gotta look good walking away” and the glute bridge will help with having a nice “walk away”. You’ll notice that many of the exercises are targeted for the lower body no woman wants a flat butt…a beautiful round behind is where it is at ladies! The glute bridge does doubled-duty working the buns AND the abs…a two-fer!
How to do a glute bridge: Start laying on your back with knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Engage your abs and lift your rear off the floor while pressing your feet to the ground and squeeze your toosh at the top. Don’t lift too high, you should have a straight line from your shoulders to your hips to your knees. (Click here for a link to a detailed description one the ACE website). Slowly lower your rear to the floor again.
Intermediate exercisers: you can straighten one of your legs switching legs halfway through your set or every other set. (Click here for a YouTube how to video).
Advanced weightlifters: Add a barbell across your hips and lift.
THIS WEEK’S CHALLENGE: Do five sets of 15 repetitions FOUR times this week. As always, just be sure to take a day off in-between to let your ba-donk-a-donk recover! Share with your friends…no one lets their friends have a saggy butt!
