TIP OF THE DAY: Save your back, lift, run exercises more by strengthening your core.

Weak muscles and shortened muscles are the root of the majority of back pain here is a great exercise you can do at home when u just don’t have the time to gym it out.

Side Bridge

Rotating with a locked midsection requires a firm hoop of support that both maintains your spine’s neutral S curve and gives your legs a firm spring to push against when you run, leap, and land. The side bridge is a safe, highly effective spinal-stability exercise that can be modified for added complexity and speed.

How Lie on your side and prop yourself up with your forearm. Your lower arm should be straight out from your side, with your hand in a fist. Use your opposite hand to grasp your shoulder to keep it steady. Hold your body like a plank with your hips, pelvis, and chest in a straight line and firm as a single unit.

How Many First, focus on simply holding the position with good form, and then work toward 3 sets of 10-second reps on each side. To add difficulty, aim for more repetitions instead of longer durations. (Your body does not learn to stiffen when exhausted.) To add complexity, roll your torso as a block to alternate sides. Fast repetitions of torso turns make the exercise even more difficult. Make sure, however, that you roll with no spinal movement or rising of the hips.

Do not hold your breath! Holding your breath can cause a spike in blood pressure! Concentrate on breathing while exercising.
