Injury Free Life: The Bridging Exercise
Updated: Feb 1, 2022
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, and arms by your side or across the chest. Push with your heels and squeeze your glutes as you lift your pelvis up off the mat. Hold 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.
