this exercise was adapted/inspired by foundation training- by dr. eric goodman. https://www.foundationtraining.com/
starting position: lying on your back with legs and feet together. bend knees. 1. draw in lower abdomen and activate your core and hold this thru the entire exercise 2. lightly squeeze your legs together and elevate your pelvis. 3. once elevated into bridge position, pull your feet toward your body. creating traction and decompression of the spine. hold up to 5 sec. or until perfect form is compromised.
