This simple exercise is easy and effective. The videos and instructions below show how it's done.
Apart from helping you tone your butt muscles (gluts), the bridge works your abs and lower back too, when done correctly.
Just like the other core exercises, that work all your core muscles together, this is an important exercise to keep your spine stable.
A strong and balanced core will protect your back from injury during exercise and through life's daily activities.
Always keep that in mind, this exercise and other core exercises are aimed towards stabilising your spine and preventing back injuries..
But if you want 6-pack abs, click here for fat burning exercises. You'll be able to uncover your 6-pack with those.

Enough about 6-packs, let's return to keeping your back free from injury..
The Bridge Exercise
This is best done on an exercise mat:
Tips: You'll feel your lower back and bottom doing most the work. But focus on working your whole core (including abs) to keep your hips up. Be sure not to take any weight on your neck. Keep breathing throughout. Take steady breaths, never hold your breath.
To Make It Harder
This variation will work each side of your gluts that little bit harder.
Tips: Keep your core balanced by doing equal amounts on each side.
