Movement Tip: Bodyweight - Glute Bridge - Single Leg
By Nicole Zapoli, HYLETE in-house certified trainer
Begin in a supine position on the floor. Bend your legs and place your feet flat on the ground about hip distance apart. Bring your hands flat to the floor on either side of your body. Begin by extending one leg off the floor keeping your knees in line with each other. Elevate your hips by driving through the heel of your working leg and engage your glutes. Aim to form a straight line from your knee to your hip to your shoulder at the top of your glute bridge before returning back to the floor.
