The bridge exercise is a great way to isolate and strengthen the glutes, hamstrings and core.
Done correctly, the bridge exercise helps improve core stability by strengthening the abdominal muscles and those of the lower back and hip. Bridge workouts functions as a back bend, a core strengthener and a balance pose.
The Bridge is also an excellent Pilates torso stability exercise, not just abs.
