    The roll-up bridge is a great exercise for activating and exercising the core muscles of trunk, and also the gluteal muscles. It promotes segmental control throughout your spine, which is very helpful for improving quality of movement, and therefore preventing injuries. Like all of our exercises, it must not be done if it causes pain.
