Build your bridge exercise for leg and core strength.

Begin lying on your back with both knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Pull your belly button in toward your spine, squeeze your glutes and lift your hips up about 6 inches. Maintain this position, and lift your right foot up off the floor. Slowly lower your right foot to the floor. Keep your hips up and lift your left foot up off the floor, and then lower your left foot to the floor. Do 10 reps total, and then release your hips to the floor.

Build a Strong Back

Get Fit Quick Tip:

Strengthen your Back.

Build a strong back by performing this exercise. Begin on the floor on your hands and knees. Keeping your spine aligned and belly button pulled up, lift your right hand and your left knee up off the floor. Return to the floor, and immediately lift your left hand and your right knee up off of the floor. Repeat alternating movement until 10 reps are complete. To progress, lift your right hand and extend your arm forward parallel to the floor. At the same time, lift your left knee up off of the floor and extend your leg until it is parallel to the floor. Hold for a count of 5, then release. Repeat the same movement with your left hand and right knee.
