25 Best Exercises For People Over 40

3. Bridge

This exercise is particularly meant for individuals looking to strengthen their posterior chain; it’s the part of your core that contains your abs, low back, hips, and glutes. Performing bridge exercises will assist you in keeping your disks and spine in the right alignment.

How do you perform the exercise?

Lie down on the floor keeping your face up. Bend your legs in a way so that they form an angle of 90 degrees with the floor. Now, engage your core and glutes and push the hips in the direction of the sky. Stay in this position for some time (preferably for 10 seconds); then, lower your body slowly until it almost touches the floor. Begin by performing five repetitions of this exercise and gradually increase the number to ten. Don’t stop breathing when performing bridge exercises.
