Find me on:

The Front Bridge - Arm Raises adds upper extremity movement to the isometric full-body hold. 

Exercise 2: Front Bridge Arm Raises

  


Tips:

Start lying flat on the ground. Push up onto 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. The key with this exercise is to stabilise your hips to keep them from rocking side-to-side before raising the selected arm. Once you have stabilised your hips, raise one arm up in front of you at shoulder height. Pause. Keep the stability throughout your body as you return that arm to the start position. Pause. Keep the stability throughout your body as you return that arm to the start position. Pause. Repeat this for the other arm, alternating arms with each rep.
