If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old; if it is completely flexible at 60, you are young.
Whether you’re pushing and strengthening your body while working out, or compressing your vertebrae while at work, you’re constantly putting stress on your body throughout the day. The bridge articulation helps to unload the spine by enabling the segmental, fluid movement that can help the muscles move more freely.
Why you should be doing Pilates bridges
- To open up and facilitate articulation and mobility through the vertebrae of your spine
- To loosen up tight back muscles
- Breath facilitates movement to stimulate blood flow
