Speaker: Let's go for our Basic Bridge exercise. Let's take it all the way down and you would be surprised to know that you are working your entire core body and a lot of back extensors in a bridge position. So lay comfortably down get those heels almost under the knees and then relax your hands to the sides. You are going to lift that bridge up for two counts all the way up, one, two. Now when you get to the top I want you to think about keeping your hips steady, pull you belly button to your spine and you are definitely using your buns, your hamstrings and your back extensors. Lower towards the floor for four counts like a draw bridge, one, two really controlled and steady four beats almost don't quite touch the floor if you want a little challenge, come up, two and then down for four, slow and controlled. Imagine balancing something right here through keeping those hips steady, one, two, three, four and up, two lower really get a good glute squeeze at the top of that exercise, and relax. So a bridge works the entire core body really great for the buns and the back of the legs.
