Bridge: Why we LOVE it!
Why do we "Bridge" in almost every Pilates class? Simple - this basic exercise has a LOT of BANG for the buck:
-strengthens glutes, hamstrings and abs
-helps prevent low back pain
What does proper Bridge position look like?
-a straight line that starts from the shoulders and continues up through the hips and knees
-glutes and abs are engaged
-no tension in the head or neck
Why I love Bridging?
-it works the glutes and hamstrings just as much as a squat would, but without the low back strain
-it really forces you to stabilize your core, especially when you are in a bridge on one leg
-it never gets boring - there are so many different variations on this basic Pilates exercise!!!
