To do the Crossed-Leg Single-Leg Glute Bridge, lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground. Then cross one ankle over the other knee and let your knee fall open. Bend your elbows and drive them into the ground.

Then bridge up, driving through your heel on the ground and your upper back. Squeeze your glutes and let your knee fall open. Even active engage the glute to pull the knee open as you lift.

Brace your core so that you don’t hyperextend your low back as you bridge. Hold for a second at the top and then lower down and repeat. Try to keep your knee as open as possible to really engage that glute and open up your hip.

Complete all reps on one side before switching. If you can’t get your hips off the ground without engaging your low back, regress the movement.
