Great idea, Major! Thanks for the tip, I'm definitely going to check that out. Great way to keep with the video, too.

If you Google progressions to doing a bridge you will find several YouTube videos on how to do a progression.

It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.

I said getting fit was simple, I did not say it was easy.

Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.

Eat well to lose weight, exercise to get fit

You can not build a six pack using twelve packs

Often when we seek a magic bullet for fitness we end up shooting ourselves in the foot.

Thanks for the encouragement and ideas, Pathfinder! I'll definitely start working on those moves. :)

Okay, you're on your way! Good for you!
Been there, now getting stronger...
Try one of these core-strength building moves:
-- Bridge on a ball -- roll up the ball to get into position.
-- Airplane -- lying prone, raise one arm & opposite leg -- hold for count of 5 or 10.
-- Squats on a ball -- put big ball behind you, against a wall, roll down to support your deep-knee bends.

You'll have that bridge in no time!!


The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another's, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises.

I'm working on Coach Nicole's 28-Day bootcamp DVD. I'm loving it, but I've run into a problem with it. I can't do a bridge! I've tried my hardest, but I can't seem to be able to get my booty up off the floor in the bridge move. Any suggestions on working my way up to it, while doing this bootcamp?
Keep in mind, I'm in pretty bad shape, strength-wise. It's something I've known to be an issue for a while, but I've been kind of in denial about it. Now that I am working on it, I'm realizing how bad of shape I really am in! So any suggestions for working on that bridge exercise would be so appreciated. :)
