Buns of steel can help support your lower back, so let’s give this pose another go.
- Lie down on your back with your knees bent onto your mat
- Bring heels as close to your glutes as possible
- Press down into your heels and lift your body up through your hips; Knees hip distance apart and toes pointed forward
- Once up, interlace your hands and shimmy them underneath your hips pressing your hands together, with the edges of your hands pressing into your mat. You may need to shimmy your arms again to ensure your chest is open and arms comfortable
Were you able to feel your glutes work in bridge pose? Did it feel odd to you if you weren’t used to trying to activate your glutes?
