Workout Wednesday: Glute bridge and lunges

(WVUE) -

Uni Glute Bridge

  • Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat, placing your hands at your sides.
  • To increase difficulty, raise yourself up on your heels instead of the soles of your feet.
  • Raise your hips off the floor, making a straight line from your hips to your shoulders and extend one leg out straight.
  • Lower yourself back to the floor and repeat using the other leg.

Additional Variations:

  • Cross one leg over the other and rest ankle on knee.
  • Remain with your hips off the ground, extend one leg, and raise it as high as you can without losing control. You can also raise and lower that leg while your pelvis is in the air and you are in bridge up position.
  • Repeat 12 to 15 times and then switch side s and continue.

Side Lunge:

  • Stand upright with your arms by your sides.
  • Take a step to one side, lowering your body down and leaning your torso slightly forward with your weight on the outside leg. Keep your trailing leg straight.
  • Push off the outside foot to return to the start position.
  • Complete all reps on one side before switching.
  • Make sure your knee does not extend beyond the line from your toes to the sky or lateral of your knee as your body moves laterally (to the side).
  • Repeat 12 to 15 times and then switch side s and continue.

Crossover Lunge:

  • Stand upright with your arms by your sides.
  • Step forward and across in front of your other leg, lowering your body down and leaning your torso slightly forward.
  • Push down on your front foot to return to the start position.
  • Make sure your knee does not extend beyond the line from your toes to the sky as you bend your front knee into downward lunge position.
  • Complete all reps on one side before switching.
  • Repeat 12 to 15 times and then switch side s and continue.
