Bridge Hip Raise

Bridge Ups-2

 

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend, I know I did 🙂  Today’s move of the week is ‘Bridge Hip Raises’. This is an AWESOME move to achieve sexy and toned legs we all want for shorts\skirt weather, that’s just around the corner.  Be sure to check out my Youtube video: http://youtu.be/xpD8kty2R7g that goes into more details and shows you proper form.  Don’t forget to ‘Like’ and share with your loved ones!

Targets: Glutes and Hamstrings

Equipment needed: Med\Heavy Weights and either a Stability ball or Chair

Step 1:
Get into a relaxed bridge position with your head, neck and upper back resting on your stability ball. Your feet and knees should be hip width apart from one another, while you place your weights on your thigh\hip bone area. Your hips should be bent into a relaxed bridge position (butt closer to the floor).

Step 2:
Exhale and engage your glutes and hamstrings pressing your hips higher towards the ceiling. Hold for about 2 seconds then slowly lower your hips back towards the floor, in starting position.

Repeat for a total of 15-20 reps (4-5 sets)

Note: This move she be conducted in a slow and controlled manor and keep your abs engaged throughout the entire movement.
