Front Pillar Bridge Exercise
The front pillar bridge exercise will work most major core muscles, giving you extra strength and stability during activities that involve weight lifting.
The core refers to the center of your body, consisting primarily of the muscles of your abs and back. These muscles support your spine while keeping your body balanced and stable. They run the entire length of your torso. A strong core provides a solid foundation for the movement of your arms and legs.
Note: This exercise is best done after abdominal work.
How to perform The Front Pillar Bridge Exercise:
- Get in a classic push-up postition. Instead of placing your hands on the floor, however, rest on your forearms so that your elbows are bent at 90-degree angles.
- Keeping your head and back straight, hold this position as long as you can.
