Hip Bridge Exercises

10 min read

Improve hip mobility and strengthen the lower back, working to counteract the effects of being sat at a desk from nine to five.

Coaching points:

  • Lie on your back, bend your knees and position your feet hip width apart
  • Ensure your back is flat on the floor. Maintain this throughout the exercise so when you return to the start position, you back lands flat
  • To begin the lift, push the ground away from you. This will cause your hips to raise
  • When your hips are through (straight line from you shoulder to you knee), lower your body to the ground in a controlled movement
