The High Bridge Exercise
In the video below you will see one of Principle Four Osteopathy clients performing a high bridge. The high bridge is a variation on the hip bridge which involves the individual lying on their back with their knees bent and raising the hips. The big difference is that the high bridge requires the individual to be both mobile and stable through the shoulder girdle as well as requiring ones posterior chain and back/core.
Often I will prescribe this exercise to help with both mobility through the hips and shoulders and as well as to help them engage their posterior chain (glutes/hamstrings) as well as maintaining a stable trunk/core.
