WHAT MUSCLES DOES THIS EXERCISE TARGET?
This exercise targets the hips. The posterior and lateral glutes in particular.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM THIS EXERCISE?
You can expect this exercise to "burn your biscuits!" In other words, by plugging the bridge into your training more often, you'll end up with stronger, more active, more robust hips. This is critical to protect your low back and knees. It also serves to prepare you for more compound movements or activities that require your hips to be in full effect.
HOW SHOULD I USE THIS EXERCISE IN MY WORKOUTS?
The Band Bridge can be used as warm-up or as an exercise within your workout. Shoot for 1-4 sets of 8-25 reps.
