bridge with chest press.

this move will work your hamstrings, glutes and chest.

start laying on your back with your feet on a bench or on the floor, either will do.  hold a dumbbell in each hand.

raise your hips off the floor, flexing your core and your glutes during the raise.

 11-26-09 026

bring your hips back down but DO NOT let them touch the floor.  instead, hover right above the ground.

11-26-09 027

complete a chest press (note: butt is still hovering!)

11-26-09 028

when bringing the dumbbells back down from the chest press, DO NOT let your elbows touch the floor, instead, let them hover.  at this point, your butt and your elbows should both be hovering.

11-26-09 029

repeat the bridge (hip raise)

11-26-09 030

and again, repeat the chest press.

11-26-09 031

and when you are done, you can go back to the initial starting position.

i like to do three sets of 15 reps.
