Easy Home Exercises: Single Leg Stability Ball Bridges

Single Leg Stability Ball Bridges. This exercise is great to strengthen the core, glutes, hamstrings and lower back, while using one leg at a time. When performed correctly, this exercise can be beneficial to rehab lower back and weak hamstrings, and to tone the glutes. To perform this exercise correctly:

Position: Lying on the back, with one leg slightly bent, with toes pointing up, one foot on top of the middle of the stability ball, with the other leg extended straight in the air.

1. Relax the head and shoulders as you lift the hips up and hold for 2 seconds
2. Make sure to stay on the heel of your foot and squeeze glutes at the top
3. Slowly lower hips, without touching the ground and repeat
4. Make sure to keep stomach tight throughout range of motion
5. Perform 10 to 15 repetitions each leg, 2 to 3 sets
