Side Bridge

The Side Bridge is an intermediate core strengthening exercises that can help balance the strength of the mid section. Quite often back pain can be caused from having a dominant leg on squats, or carrying a child on one hip and not the other or an having an occupation that involves one side dominating over the other. Side bridges due to the lateral direction of the forces train the erector spinae and obliques on the supporting side of the body. The Gluteus medius muscle is also active to prevent the hips from dropping. Balancing and strengthening these muscles can help prevent lower back injuries and improve movement
