Bridge Exercises

This picture was taken over a year ago of this bridge exercise. I’m the guy on the bottom in the wrestler’s bridge, while my friend, Tyler, is doing a hand bridge on top. I call it the Double Bridge.

Double Bridge Stunt

You might wonder what possessed us to try this stunt. The answer is just for fun and to see if we could pull it off.

The motivation was in seeing a couple of pictures in The True Are and Science of Hand Balancing. Bridging and hand balancing have always gone together because they both take strength, flexibility, and skill.

I pulled a couple more pictures out from the Inspirational Photo Section displaying some bridging stunts. In the book there are over 130 pictures in this section alone giving you all kinds of trick you could shoot for. That’s not counting the photos which show you how to perform all manner of hand balancing stunts throughout the rest of the book.

Bridging Stunts

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, the pictures in this book alone are worth the price.

Since doing this stunt, I have wanted to give it another shot because I think we could make it look better. But it is one of those one time things, at least for now.

Bridging of all kinds is something you must work up to, especially pulling off feats like this. There will be more on this topic in the future as I believe I am one of a handful of people pushing the envelope on this skill set, just like some of the old time strongmen.

If you’ve never done anything like this, get started slowly.

Good Luck and Good Bridging,
Logan Christopher

    i feel obliged to tell you that you shouldn’t bridge on your neck. i guarantee one day you’ll be sorry. the neck is not meant to bear that kind of stress. please don’t be defensive about my admonition. i care about your neck. best wishes. craig castanet, d.c.

      @craig castanet: What do you mean by “the neck is not meant to bear that kind of stress” specifically? I could say a lot of things aren’t “meant to” be done but what does that really mean?

    it means that your neck did not evolve to bear weight like that. and while one can make an argument for developing extraordinary strength in the body, it isn’t done with “exercises”, i.e. acts like that. the neck is in hyperextension with great force imposed upon it, and balancing. As a spinal expert, i.e. one who can evaluate the relative risks of various loads upon the spine and neck, what I “mean” is that you are doing something very risky. Do you understand that? And if you don’t incur an acute injury, you will acquire faster degeneration when you’re older.

      That’s peculiar that it took you 4 years to respond.

      If you didn’t like the above you’ll probably think I must be paralyzed when you see the following:

      All I know is that “spine experts” aren’t a particularly strong bunch. They seem to be paralyzed by the fear that they’re gonna hurt themselves.

      You said “one can make an argument for developing extraordinary strength in the body, it isn’t done with “exercises”, i.e. acts like that.” How is it done then, if not through progressive exercise? I know of no other way.

      The fact is I never have back pain, I never have neck pain. Wonder why that could be?
