New Zealand Fitness - - IN THIS ISSUE - By Tatyana Pikhtina

With the fol­low­ing bridge vari­a­tions, it is very im­por­tant that you fo­cus on work­ing your glutes. You don’t want to feel your lower back work­ing. Your glutes should drive the move­ment. If you do feel your lower back tak­ing over, make sure that you aren’t hy­per­ex­tend­ing your lower back, just to get your hips up higher. You want to fully ex­tend your hips, but it doesn’t mat­ter how high up you bridge if it means arch­ing your back.
