Bridge pose will strengthen your glute muscles and help activate them, according to Adell Bridges, RYS-300. She recommends doing this move in the morning to activate your glutes for the day.
- Lie flat on your back with your arms along the sides of your body, with your palms facing down. Bend your knees, placing your heels as close as you can to your bum.
- With your palms and feet pressing firmly into the ground, lift your hips up. Keep your palms on the mat or clasp your hands together below your pelvis, extending through your arms. Or you can also bend your elbows and rest your hands on your lower back. If your feet are close enough, you can also hold your ankles.
- Hold for five to 10 seconds, rolling down from the top of the spine to the sacrum to rest in between sets.
- Repeat three times.
