Today's Fitness Friday features the Banded Glute Bridge.
About the Banded Glute Bridge
The Glute Bridge works the hamstrings, lower back and abs in addition to the glutes!
Glute development is important to ensure proper hip extension while walking, running and overall function. This is an effective exercise for people who are unable to squat due to back, hip or knee pain to avoid putting pressure on these joints.
- Begin laying on your back.
- Bend your knees to place your feet flat on the floor approximately hip width apart.
- Gentle press your hands into the ground and squeeze your glutes to lift off of the floor. Add pressure out into the bands to prevent your knees from coming together.
