First Standing to Bridge Wall Walkdown!I feel really pumped because of this -it’s something I’ve been working on for a long time. The other day I did my first *almost* bridge to standing wall walk UP. I’m sure I could have done it earlier but I didn’t have the confidence or the spotter to watch me go down. Today I just went for it.
Mind you, it wasn’t pretty. I did a bit of sliding down the wall rather than controlled walking. I had a full extension the first time, and then kind of slumped into it when I did a second time in front of Lydia, then collapsed without fully holding it.
The hardest part is transitioning from the wall to the floor - that transition takes muscles in my upper back that I didn’t know I had…and I’m still squirming a bit trying to stretch them out.
I was telling a friend of my accomplishment, and realized that I don’t think I’ve ever done that. Not even when I could do bridges all the time as a kid in gymnastics - I just never practiced it. I’ve never done this move before. That’s pretty heartening considering I’m about to turn 36.
I can’t wait to stabilize it and start working on wall-less standing to floor bridging!
