Exercise of The Week: Straight Leg Bridge

Straight leg bridgeThis week we will take it easy with the workout. No need for amazing balance or weights. Just nice and simple. We are going to do the straight leg bridge. This exercise is great for targeting you bottom 😉 . So let’s get started. Lay down on you back with your body straight.  Bend one knee up and bring it is close to your bottom as you can while keeping your other leg straight. You should look like A.  Press into that foot to raise your hips into a bridge while bringing your straight leg up off the ground like B. Make sure you flex your abs and bottom as you do this for a more effective workout. Hold for 10-15 seconds. Now lower your body and leg down into start position. Do this for 10 total reps and then switch sides. That is it! simple right?

It has been a little while since I added a “make it harder” so here you go!

Make it harder: A simple and effective way to add a little resistance is to put on ankle weights. Start off with 2 lbs weights and do the exercise like normal.
