Pilates Bridge

The Pilates Bridge


The Pilates bridge or bridging on the floor is one of those on the money exercises. It gets great hamstrings and glutes activation, you need good core control to prevent using your back and also it stretches your lower spine – but only if you do it well! Here’s how!




Just remember to keep your weight in your feet – do not push onto your shoulders – this makes it more about quads, back and hip flexors

Happy bridging xox
Numbers wise aim for 8 good ones .

If you can only do 3 do them well!
