Bridge workout is one of the most effective workouts in achieving perfectly toned butts, hips, core and lower back with the added benefit of a confidence booster. It makes you sweat, breath harder, and gets your heart beating faster which results in having an eye-candy body.
For more such reasons, let’s get into why you should do Bridge exercise daily!
Improves your posture
The bridge builds strength in the glutes and erector spinae, which help you maintain proper posture when you're sitting or standing for an extended period of time.
The bridge exercise activates all the core muscles, including the transverse abdominis (flattens your core), rectus abdominis (six pack!) and obliques (hourglass figure). Performing a bridge every day works these muscles deeply, tightening everything up in one easy move.
Reduces knee and back pain
Knee and back pains are one of most common problems affecting many people living in the world. And most people might have faced this problem in their lifetime because the posterior chain (glutes and hamstrings) tend to get neglected. Whether it's daily activities or high-intensity workouts, the quadriceps usually take over and do most of the work. Unfortunately, this pattern results in tight IT bands, which can lead to knee and back pain because the dominance of one muscle over another can lead to injury. Luckily, bridges full engage that posterior chain, evening out muscle use.
Better fitting clothes
A high, toned, rounded rear looks great in any situation, and the stronger your glutes, the better their shape will be. Bridges — especially weighted bridges — give you major definition. Don't be afraid to lift heavier weight if you're doing a weighted version of the move ... it'll just give you better tone and a firmer backside!
Improves athletic performance
Strong glutes are a key factor when it comes to producing power. Power is what aids all athletic movements. Strengthening the glutes will help you sprint faster, jump higher and be more explosive on the court or field.
