Exercise of the week - Glute Bridge

Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet on the floor. In this position you maintain your neutral spine (the normal curvature of your back).
You initiate the movement using your glutes and move your hips toward the ceiling.  Only your shoulders and heels should remain in contact with the floor.
Hold this position and then lower your hips toward the floor.
See to that you don’t get your glutes in contact with the floor.
See to that you keep your core activated at all times.
Don’t drop your hips while performing the movement.
Performance meter
The execution of this exercise should be continuous. Even though it activates the glutes, it is a good mobility exercise for the lumbar spine. Individuals who lead a sedentary life or perform their daily activities in front of the computer will find this exercise extremely beneficial for their lower back.
