Full Bridge is a strength/flexibility powerhouse. It requires
flexibility in the shoulder joint, shoulder girdle, extension of the
back, as well as extension of the hips. This total body exercise has
many names from Upward Bow to Wheel Pose to Full Bridge. In yoga it's
known to give energy, help with osteoporosis, and stimulate a variety of
glands and organs. Outside of yoga this exercise is very useful in
gymnastics, acrobatics, various martial arts styles, wrestling, dance,
standard way of mastering this exercise is attempt it from scratch with
coach or partner lifting the athlete by the hip or worst by the lower
back. This often work for young children, who have the flexibility and
need just a little adjustment. Teens and up need a good preparatory work
on each body section separately. We recommend taking a look at back
extension flexibility, wrist flexibility and overhead shoulder
flexibility first. If all of those are already up to par or better, than
you can start on Bridge Program.
This program take apart each
joint and then each muscle articulating in each joint. Than each tissue
is worked individually with kinesiological stretching techniques to
avoid the painful stretch reflex, while quickly lengthening the muscles,
