Weekly Challenges


The weekly challenges/exercises I normally post on Facebook will now be posted here on the blog.  This week we will be performing the Bridge.  The goal is 2 sets of 10 repetitions. Perform this exercise slow and controlled and as always breathe.

The Bridge not only works your gluteus muscles and your hamstrings but it is also a great core and spinal stabilizer.
