Shoulder bridge

Why? It’s a great workout for the glutes. Fitter runners can intensify the exercise by holding one leg in the air.

How? Lie with bent knees, feet together. Holding the kettlebell base, bring arms
up and over the chest. Exhale, pull abs in, squeeze glutes and roll hips off the floor. Hold for eight breaths, and come back down on the exhale.
