  • profile pic Ged, I agree but we all went with the picture they put up since they did not describe it at all so we all ended up doing the plank. by AndyWeaver on 6/25/2012 11:40:00 PM

  • profile pic This is NOT a Bridge position...The Plank is a completely different exercise... Lay on your back with your hands by your sides, your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Make sure your feet are under your knees. Tighten your abdominal and buttock muscles. Raise your hips up to create a straight line from your knees to shoulders. Squeeze your core and try to pull your belly button back toward your spine. If your hips sag or drop, lower yourself back on the floor. The goal is to maintain a straight line from your shoulders to your knees and hold for 20 to 30 seconds. You may need to begin by holding the bridge position for a few seconds as you build your strength. It's better to hold the correct position for a shorter time than to go longer in the incorrect position. by GedMustoNumber1 on 6/25/2012 8:38:00 PM

    50-minute bridge hold? Dang, you need to get THEM to post here! For that matter, so do you LOL. 7 min 35 seconds is awsome, congrats! But do you have a vid to go along with it? Of course, I'm in no position to talk - I'd be lucky to get three mi by bbsinger on 12/14/2010 4:24:32 AM
