The bridge is our go to goal when it comes to conditioning the spine, in particular the thoracic spine. It is also a wonderful movement for opening and strengthening the shoulders through flexion. Both of these are key elements when it comes to achieving skills such as the handstand. Additional to the functional benefits, the gymnastic bridge offers numerous progressions and opportunities to rebalance the shoulder and helps to counter the negative effects of long hours spent working on computers or sat at desks (see: “Joining The Dots”.).
