Building Blocks: The MB Building Block Day 5

Posted by Nick Folker on Oct 20, 2015 9:43:00 PM

Find me on:

Adding the MB under your feet during the front bridge Movement is great way to spice up the front bridge. The Front Bridge is an important exercise in all facets of an athlete's journey, but it can get very monotonous and boring. Adding in the MB creates some diversity in the program, as well as complexity and instability in the movement.


MB Front Bridge- Feet

To start, place the MB close to your feet. 
Set your forearms and hands on the ground as you would for a Front Bridge. With your knees on the ground, place your toes on the MB. When you have stabilised, brace through your midsection and press into the floor with your hands and forearms to raise your knees off the ground. Avoid letting the MB roll away or destabilize you from the front bridge position. Hold form for the presrcibed time. Start with shorter intervals to hold perfect form, then gradually increase time maintaining this form.
