  • Squeeze your buttocks at the top and return back to the floor at a controlled pace
  • Repeat until finished the set

Main muscles targeted:

  • Hamstrings
  • Glutes

Main benefits:

A hamstring bridge is a great way to strengthen the hamstrings without gym equipment. You will be strengthening two of the most important but often neglected muscles in the lower body. This exercise is a safe and controlled exercise that can lead to even more functional exercises down the track. Using your heels instead of feet flat can help to encourage more hamstring activity than usual.
