This one is super simple, cheap and quite effective! All you need is you and a floor. The best part of this exercise is that it also works in some other core muscles, such as the hamstrings, quadriceps, butt and hip flexors.

First, you want to start on your back (in the supine position) with your knees bent, feet flat on the floor and arms laying to your side with your palms facing downward.

Now, just as the name implies, "bridge" yourself upwards until you can visualize a straight line from your chin to your knees. Hold this position for 3-5 seconds while contracting your ab muscles, your butt and thighs. Don't overdo it - there should be no pressure applied to your neck or head. Lower your hips back down to the floor slowly

Rinse and repeat!
