Improving My Posture – Bridging

I wrote in my last post that I had a few posture problems that I am trying to fix. Now being a big fan of Convict Conditioning it’s probably not surprising that the first place I’m starting is bridging. I’ve been doing bridges for about a year and a half, I didn’t quite start it at the same time as the rest of my Convict Conditioning as I hadn’t fully understood the benefits of it (forgive me for me the error of my ways Coach Wade!). When I first started training this I was a long way off being able to get anywhere near a bridge, the progressions in CC allowed me to reach what I would say is my best bridge below:

This is without any prior rolling, if I use my rumble roller first to loosen up my shoulders I can do slightly better than this. Now whilst I’m pleased with the progress I’ve made, it still needs a lot of work! My my arms are not straight or even in-line with my head but I’ll keep working at it.

I believe this exercise is a good measure of how I’m progressing, the more I do to fix my tight shoulders the better my bridge will become and the more my posture will improve.
