Bridge Up

Prescription: 
  • Lie flat on your back
  • Bend arms and put them on the ground by your ears, with forearm vertical to the floor
  • Bend knees and bring your feet in, placing feet flat on the ground
  • Press through shoulders and drive through hips to to raise your body off the floor
  • Reach full extension in the hips with legs straight as you push your head through your arms
  • Finish the bridge up with arms vertical to the floor and the rest of the body in full extension

Note: You can scale this exercise by placing feet flat on a higher surface (step, box, wall) and/or have a partner stand by your hands to spot your shoulders on the press up.
