The floor bridge is a simple, yet very effective exercise for working the glutes and hamstrings. Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor, slightly apart. Arms are by your sides in a position that is comfortable for you. Slowly push through your heels, lifting your hips off the floor until your body forms a straight line from knees to shoulders. Hold this position, then slowly lower your hips back to the floor. Perform 2-3 sets of 20-25 repetitions.
Tip: Be careful not to lift your hips too high, or allow your lower back to arch during this exercise.
For an added challenge try performing this exercise on a single leg.
