Summer's long gone and fall is nearing its end but that's no reason to let your fitness routine fall by the wayside. Try these variations of Shoulder Bridge for a toned backside. With this pose, you'll begin to feel confident even when baring it all.
Begin by lying on your back with your knees bent, your feet flat on the floor and your arms alongside your body. Inhaling, slowly lift your hips up towards the ceiling forming a straight line from your shoulders to your knees, activating your glutes. Hold for five seconds. Exhaling, slowly roll down bone by bone like you're laying down a string of pearls. Repeat eight times.
For a challenge, lift your hips and bring your right knee into your chest. Then, lift your right foot towards the ceiling and slowly lower until your foot is just hovering above the mat. Repeat eight times on both sides. Make sure your hips don't dip and your bottom doesn't sag!
