I don’t know about you, but I love a good butt!
Mine on the other hand, I don’t consider to be “good” but aren’t we all like that?
We truly are our own worst critics, but in a way, I like it that way because when I’m hard on myself, it only pushes me more and more to correct the issue, whatever it may be that’s bothering me.
Not that my butt bothers me on a daily basis or anything, but once bikini season hits and I want to bust out a cute bikini bottom, then I’m feeling a little bothered.
SO what the point?
Being your own worst critic isn’t so bad! This way, your mind see’s an issue ( even though you may not want to admit it ) but you can use that mindset of wanting to better yourself, to push yourself into further progress. Whether it be a weight you can’t lift ( just yet! ) or a part of your body that you want to change. Having the right mind-set works!!
Annnnnndd….. since I’m such a critic of my own butt, today I’m sharing some bridge variations which I use to keep my glute work fun!
( there’s also a little something, something at the end of this post! )
How to perform a glute bridge
+ depending on the variation, foot position could vary
+ always remember to exhale on exertion
+ depending on how much weight is used, work with a tempo of anywhere between 2 – 4 seconds up & down
+ keep your core tight
+ push though your hips and allow your glutes to takeover
+ squeeze your glutes, as if they‘re going to fall off!!
It’s all about that PUSH & SQUEEZE!!
This isn’t childbirth, we’re talking booty building!
A supported bridge is performed by supporting your upper body on a ball ( as shown ) or a bench.
SINGLE LEG BRIDGE
A single leg bridge is performed by pushing through your glutes, while supporting your entire body with one leg.
You can make it even harder by adding a leg lift too! ( check it out HERE )
OR add a stability ball….
SINGLE LEG ELEVATED BRIDGE
The single leg elevated bridge can be much harder, especially when you’re using a stability ball. This means your entire core has to work with your glutes to keep your body stabilized.
Feeling like turning these bridges into a workout?
TRY: doing 100 on each leg!
Can you say, calorie blast?!
Ok, so let’s get into that something, something!
