The Bridge
Works: Your butt and core

3. Release the contraction and lower your glutes almost to the floor, being careful not to touch the mat. Then, immediately raise your glutes again while contracting the muscles.
4. Continue to contract and release for about 12-15 reps. On your last repetition, hold the contraction for about 10 seconds. Repeat for 2-3 setts.
