Virtual Fitness: Advanced Fitball Bridge

Advanced Fitball Bridge

The Advanced Fitball Bridge is a strength training exercise that works the core muscles, glutes, and hamstrings.

Instructions: Place both feet on the fitball. Arms at your sides, palms down. Exhale and lift your back off mat. Inhale and return to start position. Avoid arching your back.

Exercise goal is to maintain spinal stability while moving.

Modification: Perform the exercise with both legs (calves) on the fitball, instead of your feet.

Caution: Before attempting this exercise, you should be able to perform the bridge exercise without the fitball, and then progress to the modification with both legs on the fitball.

EXERCISE DOs and DONTs – As with all exercise programs, when using exercise videos that appear on this site, you need to use common sense. If your muscles are weak, either do the modifications, or don’t attempt this exercise if it’s too difficult for you. When starting an exercise program, be sure to discuss your plans with your healthcare provider
