Bridge Twist and Reach – Isometric Hip Abduction, Band
HOW: Begin by lying on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground. Loop a band around your knees. Push the band out with both knees, then bring both of your hands together with your arms straight out in front of your chest. From here, push into the ground and lift your hips up into the air. While holding this bridge position, rotate both arms to one side, and then the other side. Return to the starting position and repeat for the prescribed amount of reps.
FEEL: You should feel you hip muscles working while holding the band, and your core and shoulder muscles while performing the bridge with the arm rotations.
COMPENSATION: Maintain the bridge position, don’t let your hips drop down. Keep constant tension on the band
