Low Bridge with Leg Raise (Training with Your Own Body Weight)

The Low Bridge with Leg Raise is an exercise that targets the hamstrings and the abdominal muscles. The hamstrings are the muscles situated at the back of your thighs, while the gluteal muscles form the buttocks. On the other hand, strong stomach muscles can help a lot in preventing back-related problems and in improving your posture. Moreover, you will be able to get rid of flabs and unwanted fat, making you look good and feel good about yourself. Learn how to do the Low Bridge with Leg Raise in this section:

STEP 1: Lie on your back and bend your knees, keeping your feet flat on the mat. Put your hands on your sides.
STEP 2: Lift your hips. Keep your feet and hands flat on the mat.
STEP 3: Raise your left leg towards the ceiling.
STEP 4: Still keeping your leg raised, slightly move your hips towards the mat, then return to starting position. Repeat this exercise, this time raising the other leg.

Whether you prefer working with Free Weights, Weights on Gym Machines or just with your own body weight, the important thing to do is to start realistically and keep at it – at all costs
