Stability Ball Bridge with Abduction

Place elastic tubing around both knees, and lie with upper back on stability ball.

While keeping your feet flat and knees pointed straight ahead at shoulder-width, rise into bridge position.

Apply pressure into tubing, draw abdomen in, activate glutes and lift pelvis up as far as possible without arching low back.

Hold bridge for two seconds, then slowly lower to start position.

Perform 2 sets of 15 reps for each exercise. Make sure to train both legs on directional and single-leg exercises.
Purpose: Eliminate muscle imbalances by strengthening glutes, core, abductors and adductors
