Bridge exercise is like forming a bridge with your lower body. Yes! That is a workout on its own! Don't you think that it's amazing how exercising can be so simple?
I've seen and read about so many people who give up because they think that they need to train like Jack LaLanne during his peak to be fit and healthy, but that's not the case!
You train as hard as he did if you want to be a world-renowned competitive bodybuilder. If you want to simply be healthy, you just need to do simple workouts from day to day.
This is dependent on how you feel during the exercise. Some people might feel that 10 seconds is too tiring, while others might find that it is easy.
Listen to your body. Do not push yourself too hard. Do what you can. Your strength will improve in time.
Cushion your back well by doing this workout on a mat. This exercise places a little strain on the neck so I'm sure you want to minimize injuries.
You can choose to hold the position for a longer period of time, as opposed to only holding it for 10 seconds.
I must remind you, do what you are comfortable with. As you become stronger, you can hold the position longer without even realizing it!
Since this exercise places a bit of stress on your neck, I do not really like to suggest that you increase the number of repetitions.
However, if you are confident, you can try to do more than just 8 repetitions.
Many people stop exercising because they feel overwhelmed by the amount of effort they need to put it. A lot of times, such information you get is false.
Shut yourself out from all the noise out there. I promise to give you honest and clear information that you should know.
After all, true knowledge is power. Try this workout and reap the benefits!
