Hip Bridge With Leg Lift Exercise for Bone Health

Step 1

Lie comfortably on the floor.

Step 2

Raise your knees so that your feet are comfortably under your knees, your shoulders are comfortably on the floor and your arms are at your sides.

Step 3

Raise your hips up until your body creates a flat plane between your shoulders and your knees, entering the basic ‘hip bridge’ position.

Step 4

While holding your  body in a hip  bridge  position, raise one foot into the air straight up or as high as your  flexibility and strength will allow. Then slowly return the lifted  leg to the starting position to complete one repetition.  Repeat 9 more times to complete one set of 10 repetitions.

You’ve completed this one!  Great job!
