I don't know what that one is, an upside down pushup, perhaps. Looking
around, I see similar to this a lot, but it mislabelled, IMHO.
I've always done it the 2nd way simply because I "made up" an
exercise for the back that was the opposite of the plank for the abs.
However, most of the online info refers to the 1st way. Which way is
better, and why?
This is a traditional back bridge, albeit not such a good example.
It can also be done, with similar posture in the back but with only the
head on the ground, and is called a neck bridge.
Pushing mainly with your heels, lift your hips off the floor while keeping your back straight. Breathe out as you perform this part of the motion and hold at the top for a second.
Slowly go back to the starting position as you breathe in.
Variations: You can perform this exercise one leg at a time.
its Good one if your beginner.
