Single Leg Glute Bridges & Bird Dogs

Often times we tend to extend through the lumbar spine instead of from the hips. Learning to disassociate one from the other can help improve lower back health.
Here are a couple of exercises to work on. 1) Flexing the opposing hip during a Single Leg Glute Bridge will help you reach full hip extension on the working leg.
2) When performing a Bird/Dog exercise make sure to flex the lumbar spine to focus on extending through the hip instead of the spine.
