Isometric Bridge – Isometric Hip Abduction, Band

HOW: Loop a resistance band around your legs just above the knees. Begin by lying on your back with your knees bent up and your feet flat on the ground about shoulder width apart. Put tension on the band rotating your hips slightly outward while maintaining your feet flat on the ground. Push into the ground with your feet lifting your hips as high as you can flexing your glutes and core muscles. Hold this position for as long as prescribed.    FEEL: You should feel your core, hamstring, and hip muscles working.  COMPENSATION: Keep the back flat at the top of the bridge, don’t let it sag or drop down. Don’t push out on the band too much causing your feet to turn outward.
