 How To Do A Glute Bridge

  1. Start by laying on your back. Use an exercise mat or the floor. Keep your knees in a bent position with your feet flat on the floor. Place your feet hip-width apart with the toes facing away from you. Gently contract your abdominal muscles to flatten your low back into the floor.
  2. As you are lifting your hips keep your abs engaged  while pressing your heels into the floor for added stability. Avoid pushing your hips too high, which can cause hyperextension (arching) in your low back. Keeping your abdominals strong helps to prevent excessive arching in the low back.
  3. Continue step one and two for the duration of your workout.
