Core Knowledge


Pillar Bridge - Lateral Jumping Jack

Starting Position

  • Lying on your side with your forearm on the ground under your shoulder, your feet stacked on top of each other


  • With your body in a straight line and your elbow under your shoulder, push your hip off the ground, creating a straight line from ankle to shoulder and keeping your head in line with your spine
  • From the bridge position, lift your top leg into the air as if you were doing a lateral jumping jack
  • Hold your position for the prescribed amount of time

Coaching Keys

  • Keep your body in a straight line and keep your stomach tight
  • If this is too difficult, do individual repetitions - 1 repetition per 2 seconds

You Should Feel It

  • In your shoulders and trunk.
