Exercise 5: Front Bridge Up Down
Start lying flat on the ground. Push up on to your elbows with hands flat on the ground forming a straight line from the crown of your head through your tailbone. Pull your belly button in to decrease the hollow in the lower-back. Set your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Once you have stabilzed your mid-section, press up from the floor with your right arm, then with the left. Pause in the pushup position, with back flat and a slight bend at the elbow joint. Return to the floor in a controlled movement, first with the right arm, then the left, keeping your hips from rocking side-to-side or rotating. Pause at the start position, then rep for prescribed reps, alternating arms with each rep.
