5 Reasons You Should Do Bridges Daily

The bridge builds muscle, boosts flexibility, and can easily be incorporated into any routine. Here are five reasons to convince you to do bridge exercises daily.

There is no doubt, a strong and toned rear has so many benefits. It not only helps you look fabulous but also makes you strong. It does not matter if you have flabby or flat glutes, you can easily sculpt them in no time by practising bridges regularly.


Here is why you should add bridges to your workout every day:

Reduce Knee and Back Pain

The posterior chain, i.e. glutes and hamstrings, easily get neglected. The quadriceps usually take over all your daily activities and high-intensity workouts, and therefore, do most of the work which often leads to knee and back pain. This is mostly because the dominance of one muscle over another can lead to injury but don’t worry, you can try bridges to engage that posterior chain to even out the muscle use.

Improve Athletic Performance

Nothing is as good as strong glutes when it comes to producing power. As we know power boosts all the athletic movements hence, strong glutes help you run faster and jump higher.

Your Clothes Will Fit Better

A high, toned and rounded rear looks great in any situation and stronger glutes make your shape look better in whatever you wear.

Strengthen Your Core

The bridge exercise activates all the core muscles, including the transverse abdominis (flattens your core), rectus abdominis (six pack) and obliques (hourglass figure). So, try any of the bridge variations to work on these muscles deeply and tighten up your muscles in one easy move.

Improve Your Posture

Do bridges on a regular basis as it strengthens your glutes to maintain a better posture when you're sitting or standing for an extended period of time.
