To do the Glute Bridge to Sit Up, lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground about hip-width apart. Your heels should be just beyond your fingertips when you stretch your arms down by your sides. Then bend your elbows to 90 degrees.

Driving through your heels, arms and upper back, bridge up, lifting your hips up as high as possible. Really squeeze your glutes and pause to hold for a second. Keep your abs engaged so that you don’t hyperextend your lower back.

Then lower your hips back down and let your feet move a little bit away from your butt so that you can perform the sit up. Beginners may need to straighten their legs out more.

Then sit up, making sure to hollow and roll up so that you engage your abs and not your low back. Once you sit all the way up, lie back down then bring your feet back in and bridge back up.
