Exercise Of The Week: One-Legged Hip Bridge

In the traditional hip bridge, both feet are planted on the floor as you lift your hips to create a straight plane between your knees, hips, down to your chest. This variation exerts your core as you balance on one leg. No equipment is needed, making this a great move when you’re not able to access your usual exercise gear.

  • Lay on the ground, with knees bent, feet planted flat on the ground.
  • Extend one leg straight out and lift it upwards.
  • Place your arms at your sides, palms facing downward for added stability.
  • Engage your core.
  • Once you’re in this position, raise your hips so that your knees, hips, and neck form a straight line (see video).
  • Lower your hips and repeat the movement 10-12 times for one set. Complete 2-3 sets.

Please speak to your provider before starting any new exercise regimen.
