How to Do the Bridge on an Exercise Ball

By LaReine Chabut

The bridge is one of the most classic positions for ball exercises. The bridge gives your hips and lower back a workout as you lift up your body.

1Rest your head and shoulders on the ball with your knees bent at a 90-degree angle.

Make sure that your knees are stacked over your ankles.

2Keep your arms folded behind your head and press the hips up toward the ceiling.

Don’t let your thighs and butt sink toward the ground. Keep everything tight and pressed upward.

3Slowly lower your hips down to starting position.

Complete this exercise 10 times.
