First Side Bridge Position
- Lay on side with knees bent to 90 degrees but so that your hips and thighs are in line with your torso. Have your elbow bent at 90 degrees so that your arm is pointing perpendicular to your body.
- Keeping your head in line with your neck, raise up your waist so that you begin to feel the side of your body closest to the floor is beginning to work.
- The aim is to hold this position for 90 seconds, if you fail before this then take a break no longer than 10 seconds long and complete the 90 seconds. If you fail again then stop the exercise.
Note: if at any point you feel pain in the region you are working then stop. If you have a shoulder problem then ask me to give you an alternative exercise as this can also be performed similarly using a gym ball.
All of the exercises detailed here are for specific problems or injuries. It is always recommended to consult your practitioner before attempting any exercises.
