Hey everyone Emily from POGO Physio here. Just wanted to show you a quick exercise of the day. The exercise is a Hamstring bridge with abductor ball squeeze. This is a really good exercise that is going to help you work your hamstrings, your glutes and your inner thigh muscles so its really good for runners or anyone trying to rehab lower back or SIJ injuries with the guidance from the physio. So how you do it is just lie on your back squeeze the ball between your knees and lift your bottom of the floor. Nice and controlled and making sure you squeeze your glutes together as you lift up. Start with about 3 rounds of 12 reps and you can build up to 20 from there. Give me a go and let me know what you think!
