Building Blocks: The Front Bridge Series Day 2

Posted by Nick Folker on Sep 21, 2015 9:04:18 PM

Find me on:

All athletes should have an understanding of what the Front Bridge is. The main difference in the way we prescribe this is that we you place your hands flat on the ground, with a straight line from middle finger to elbow and shoulder.

 

Exercise 2: Front Bridge

 

 

Tips:

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. Keep your feet hip-width apart. Emphasize perfect technique for short increments of time and gradually increase these increments while mainting perfect form. Do not try and see how long you can hold this while your technique breaks down. This needs to be performed with perfect technique to avoid adding excess stress to your shoulders and lower-back.
