High Bridge Knee Pulls – Work your Core, Legs & Glutes with one move
Increase the intensity of the standard bridge by placing your feet on a bench and add knees pulls. This is an intermediate exercise and good form is very important, be sure to keep your abs contracted and hips level throughout the entire move. Pay particular attention to your hamstrings and low back, stop right away if you feel those muscles tightening or cramping.
Do it Right
- Lie on back w/ heels on an exercise bench feet hips distance apart, knees and hips bent to 90 degrees
- Contract abdominals and lift hips off the mat so knees, hips & shoulders are in a straight line, squeeze glutes and hold for a second, lift right heel up, keeping right knee in line w/ right hip pull knee in toward your shoulder as far as possible, return leg to starting position and repeat on other side.
- Lower hips back down to the floor to complete 1 rep.
