Isometric Single Leg Elevated Bridge – Knee Straight
HOW: Place your heel on an elevated surface. Arms relaxed to the side. Lift and hold the opposite leg in the air. Apply pressure with one heel onto the elevated surface and drive your heel down into the elevated surface. This will bring your hips up.
FEEL: Your hamstrings, and even your calves will be working during this exercise.
COMPENSATION: Don’t let your hips drop down while holding the elevated position. Don’t twist to one side while one leg is stabilizing on the elevated surface. Keep your arms relaxed. Don’t straighten your knee all the way out.
