Alright, I see this everywhere and it's a huge pet peeve of mine. So this morning I went to the basement and snapped two pics. The first one is the common, corrosive way I see this movement performed, the second is how I cue this exercise.
I love this movement! The posterior chain is so critical to injury reduction in sport. This move crushes the hamstrings and the glutes 🍑🍑. The variation shown here is a static hold. A lot of times I see this preformed as a dynamic thruster. The concept herein applies either way.
The biggest corrosive I see with this movement is on leg that's suspended in the air. Now in the first example how my knees are not together. Bringing my hip into flexion on that side which two fold affects the activation of the movement. 1) it means activation through the glutes on my right side is reduced. 2)you tend to not bring the other side all the way into extension like you should.
Next time you try a this movement, have someone watch to see that you keep your knees together, your foot dorsiflexed (toe pulled toward your shin), and that your straight as a board groom your shoulders to your knees. It will completely change the dynamic of this movement. For an extra challenge I love to place my foot in the center of a bosu ball, round-side up. Hands up as I have in the picture offer additional challenges. .

I love this move I picked up from @jeanneheilemanyoga ‘s Instagram a while back... and I’ve been revisiting it and teaching it all week. it feels like a reverse bridge to me, and it gets my posterior chain activated in a way that’s really unique. The block helps me use adductors a bit more effectively in hip extension. #multifidus #glutes #corework #reversebridge #hipextension #mobility #houstonyoga #yoga #movement #posteriorchain #play #instayogis

Loving the Circuit. The start of a NEW 8 weeks. It's pure love watching everyone's strength increase, seeing form being maintained for longer and consistency with commitment. #jumpingjacks #stephops #modified #battleropes #highknees #shufflesuicides #elbowtoknee #plankshouldertaps #plank #reversebridge #butterflies #adductors #abductors #soulfitness #erinontario #classes

So this happened today. First time I can recall ever doing a #reversebridge. At least in my adulthood. But go me!

Don't hesitate - #maryoliver "If you suddenly and unexpectedly feel joy, don't hesistate. Give in to it. There are plenty of lives and whole towns destroyed or about to be. We are not wise, and not very often kind. And much can never be redeemed. Still, life has some possibility left. Perhaps this is its way of fighting back, that sometimes something happens better than all the riches or power in the world. It could be anything, but very likely you notice it in the instant when love begins. Anyway, that's often the case. Anyway, whatever it is, dont be afraid of it plenty. Joy is not made to be a crumb." Joy is not made to be a crumb.

Worked on my #plowpose today! (Second picture). Lootssss of work needs to be done on this one. Yogi friends please critique me! When my feet hit the ground it feels good and I think my posture is correct and then I look at the picture and my back has a curve. Help!

È stato il primissimo #ReverseBridgeTripodalico della loro vita!!!
(mi dispiace che il video non sia completo)
Niente male come prima volta, soprattutto considerando che non è un esercizio semplice da fare e loro erano già stanche e con i muscoli in fiamme per i precedenti 40’ di #TotalBodyFunctional!
Io sono veramente ma veramente tanto contenta di loro! Si possono fare e faremo grandi cose insieme! ❤️

#PliéSquat: Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width, arms by your sides, and point your toes out to 11 o’clock and 1 o’clock. Start by hinging at the hips pressing your hips behind you. Flex your knees and squat down, bend your knees until your thighs are parallel to the ground. At the bottom of the movement make sure your knees are directly over your ankles. Pause at the bottom and count for 5 seconds, then straighten your legs and squeeze your glutes on the way up.
Complete 2-4 set of 15 reps

#ReverseBridge on Step: Drive through your hands and heels and raise your hips up off the ground toward the ceiling, keeping your knees bent at a 90 degree angle. Press your chest up and out as you raise your hips until the hips are fully extended. As you bridge up relax your head back to a neutral position. Your body should be in a nice straight line at the top.
Beginners may need to keep their hips bent a bit to hold the bridge at the top. Hold for a few seconds and then lower back down and repeat.
Complete 2-4 sets of 15 reps holding each one for 3 – 5 seconds

#LateralStepHops: Stand to one side of the step with the left foot on top of the step in the middle. Squat down until your leg on the step is bent close to 90 degrees. Using a double arm swing, jump up and over to the other side of the step, landing softly with the right foot on top of the step and the left foot on the floor. Then push off with your right foot and jump across the step and land on the other side of the step with your right foot and your left foot on the step. Jump back and forth landing softly with each rep.
Complete 2-4 sets of 15 reps on each leg

#Step Jump Squats: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart in front of the step, arms by your sides and slightly back. Squat down until your knees are bent about 90 degrees. Immediately swing your arms overhead and jump upward as high as possible and land mid-step. As you land, gently bend your knees and sink back down into the squat position. You can either gently hop backwards in the same manner or simply step backwards and reset to do the next rep. Complete 2-4 sets of 15 reps.

#workoutwednesday move of the day: Reverse Bridges 🔥
Try to keep your core engaged the entire time (squeeze belly button in towards your spine) and squeeze those glutes when you get to the top. Try it and let me know what you think! I did 3 sets of 20. Hubby showed me this tonight and I thought "duh why haven't I done this before 🤣" .
