  1. U need to move the writing somewhere else.. how can one see the model what she is performing

  2. What does it mean by "tightening your core"? Is it like..tucking in your bellybutton?

  3. Use the strength of your glutes to bridge and squeeze your glutes for 2-3 seconds at the top.

  4. Thanks to everyone asking about the best way to inhale and exhale while performing this exercise. Physical therapist Shane Noffsinger says that with the bridging exercise, it is helpful to coordinate your breathing with the up phase and down phase of the movement. This ensures that you are not holding your breath, and it can even help with the proper muscular stability for this exercise. Exhaling on the way up as you engage your gluteal (buttock) muscles, and then inhaling on the way down is the best way to breathe with this exercise. This will help engage your deep abdominal stabilizer muscles.

  5. searched only to know when to inhale and exhale.. n u didn't tell that important thng..
