Weekly Wednesday Workout: Abdominal Bridge

 

Abdominal bridges are a a great way to exercise the abs. Somehow when I do them, I always feel it the most in my quads and my butt, so it definitely has the ability to hit multiple areas. I don’t feel it as intensely as I do the leg raises but I do feel them working all the same.

Then I tried the alternate move. I couldn’t even do two of them! wow! Holding one leg out while lifting your butt of the ground made my entire body shiver 🙂 (Gotta love how easy she made them look, but I saw a little struggle in her face) I love finding moves like these, I know I need to do some practice before I can do full sets, but I will get there!

Are you familiar with abdominal bridges? What about the expert modification?

I love this move always feels kinda freaky though, lol. I wonder does anyone share that feeling!

I didn’t even know that was an abdominal exercise. I thought it was for you butt! I remember them from the Jane Fonda video back in the day a million years ago (but I was little). –Lisa

This move is on the Jillian Michaels *sometimes I feel like I should get paid by this chick!* Shred It with Weights. She adds in a dumbbell bicep move while in the bridge with the leg raise. I’ve done the move but not with the leg raise yet.

I am trying this as I read the post….yep I don’t think I can do it. I thought it would be easier. But I do need to work on this because my abs need it

omg, I didn’t even realize this was an abs exercise. It makes and booty and legs burn most of all.

Love these! During my Pilates class last month I had the class do two songs with variations of the bridge. They weren’t supposed to put that tush down the entire time! Great workout. 🙂

For me this is easier than doing those planks. It does start to burn and work the muscles after a few lifts though.

Back in the day when my trainer had me doing these for my abs, I was disappointed because it didn’t seem like an aggressive enough ab work out. I gotta try the modified one.

My trainer used to have me doing these. I’ve been looking for exercises to incorporate into my ab workout and I may just add this one. I don’t know about that modified version though! LOL!

I always struggle with the expert version of that move!
I might use part of the move today and combine it with something – gotta think about that!
Love your Wednesday moves!!

OOOOooooo I’m going to try this one. Never heard of it and probably WON’T attempt her one leg action any time soon but it might help. THANKS

Weekly Wednesday Workout: Glute Bridge March - Brooklyn Active Mama February 11, 2015 - 4:16 am

[…] We have done bridges before but this time we are adding a march! I tried these and my hamstrings were on fire! I think one important part to note is that the exercise is done completely on the heels.I love these because not only are you toning up your hamstrings, the bum is getting toned as well! […]
