  1. Thanks to everyone asking about the best way to inhale and exhale while performing this exercise. Physical therapist Shane Noffsinger says that with the bridging exercise, it is helpful to coordinate your breathing with the up phase and down phase of the movement. This ensures that you are not holding your breath, and it can even help with the proper muscular stability for this exercise. Exhaling on the way up as you engage your gluteal (buttock) muscles, and then inhaling on the way down is the best way to breathe with this exercise. This will help engage your deep abdominal stabilizer muscles.
