Injury Free Life: The Bridging Exercise

Updated: Mar 11


Hi, it’s Rob from New Leaf Physiotherapy in beautiful Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada.

Today, I am going to go over the bridging exercise .  It is one of the exercises I personally use to help keep myself injury free.


To start, lie on your back, knees bent up arms across the chest.  Pushing with your heels and squeeze your glutes as you lift you pelvis up off the mat.  Hold to a straight line between shoulders, hips and knees.  Take a deep breath in and slowly lower yourself down as you exhale.


This exercise is used for activating the glutes that help to stabilize the hips, which is needed when running.
