First Bridge to Standing Walkup!
I’ve been trying to improve my bridges because I feel like I’ve hit a wall. So I’ve been trying to focus on standing to bridge wall walkdowns. These have been going well, I think it’s more of a hesitancy and fear to go fully down without a spotter.
So today I tried doing a bridge (ground up) by holding the wall about head level (if I was doing the bridge on the ground). I had the strength to do it, which I was pleased about because attempts of changing it up by doing it on a chair just didn’t work.
Then I thought to myself…hmm…how bout walking up? And I could do it! It was really exciting, and I consider it a big step in my bridge progression.
I can’t completely do it from a bridge. But it’s close. I tried doing it (I probably shouldn’t have done that today) from a floor bridge - but transitioning from that to grabbing the wall was just a little too difficult.
I spent a lot of time afterwards looking up walkover progressions. It’s exciting! I think I really need to focus on progressing - having books or chairs that are smaller to focus on the progress….I’ve been just mindlessly doing ground bridges for a while now - it’s good, it has developed my arms, but I need to make sure I know the next step to force progress.
