Day 25: Maintain Your Core and Alignment

The Bridge: Begin by sitting on an exercise ball and walk your feet out to a “bridge” position. Once the bridge form is established, with engaged abdominal muscles, lift each leg alternately to be parallel with your body and the floor. Simultaneously pull down on an exercise band which is secured to a stationary object such as a table, in an overhead motion towards the hip alternating arms opposite the leg being lifted.
