How to do Glute Bridge

Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Easy

Impact Level: Normal

Target Body Parts: lower back, glutes, hamstrings


Lay on the floor with your knees bent to the ceiling and your feet under your knees at hip width, near to your Glutes. Have your arms flat to the floor alongside your body. Pull your belly button into your spine, and then tense your glutes and hamstrings to lift your hips up as far as you can.

Once in the position, it can be tempting just to ‘hang out’. Instead, continually push your feet down into the floor to activate the glutes and ensure the belly stays active.

How to make Glute Bridge more challenging

Have your arms overhead on the floor instead of alongside the body. Once in the pose you can lift one leg at a time into a vertical position reaching up to the ceiling. Check out our shoulder bridge and reverse plank exercise.
