Not to Mention How You'll Become Stronger and More Flexible
in Ways Nothing Else Can Compare with Bridging Exercises
I n the summer of last year, a group of friends and myself were in Spain waiting to go to Pamplona for the running of the bulls. We had several hours before the train would arrive and take us off.
To kill the time we decided to play some football in a nearby park. (Finding an American football in Europe wasn’t easy but that’s a story for another time.)
Since the only place we could find was a field of half grass and half granite, we played two-hand touch rather then tackling each other. Still, being men it was bound to get rough, and highly competitive.
The whole game was a tight battle for the lead, with the three on three action. And it was going smoothly until that ill-fated kickoff.
The kick was high and short. As we scrambled forward to catch it, the other guys were rushing towards us. The ball hit the ground and bounced high up into the air.
I leaped upwards. I don’t know how exactly it happened, or even who hit me, but my feet were taken out from under me sending me spinning. Six feet up in the air I turned over and came crashing down onto the packed ground, the back of my head being the first point of contact. THUMP!!
I’m not gonna lie and say it didn’t affect me. It did. I was stunned and had to take some time out of the game. But within an hour I was fine.
Meanwhile one of my friends pulled a neck muscle by looking over his shoulder for a pass. Seriously!
There are two differences here between me and my friend. One, I fell on my directly on my head from six feet up in the air and he didn’t. Yet I can guarantee I was looking over my shoulder for passes too.
The main difference was my training. I know that much worse would have happened if I hadn’t made my neck and spine more resilient. I would have suffered a concussion or maybe just been knocked out cold on that day.
The question you have to ask yourself is how do you think you’d fair against that shock? Wouldn’t you like to bounce back in just moments?
If you answered yes, read on to discover how you can put a few exercises into action that’ll make you more concussion proof along with much else.
In the US alone, it is reported that 10,500 suffer spinal injuries and a staggering 1,833,000 suffer from a concussion per year. Now there is no way I can eliminate those risks, but there are ways you can help guard yourself against injury. Not only that, you'll improve your health, strength, flexibility and more.
“The Bridge" - Not Just For Wrestlers or Gymnasts Anymore
The spine is the most important part of your body. If it is not in good shape then you are not in good shape. Anyone who has ever thrown out their back or tweaked their neck knows just how much these injuries can debilitate your life.
Now you can take advantage of all my work in testing in how to amplify your results when bridging. You'll discover:
- How to Build Thick Columns of Muscle across the Back like Steel Cables Without Making You as Stiff as a Board.
- How to Develop a Neck capable of Withstanding the Greatest of Shocks. Hopefully you'll never need it, but its good to know its there in case you do.
- Never again sleep wrong and wake up with neck pain or pick up a box and throw out your back.
You might be thinking do I really want to get a course that’s only on bridging. The answer is yes and let me tell you why. These exercises do a lot more for you then just give you a strong neck and spine. You’ll also:
- Gain Complete Mobility and Stability in the Shoulders along with Strength Coursing Down Your Arms.
- Increase Whole Body Coordination as you shift from one position to another along with Strong Abs to keep you from collapsing to the ground.
- Boost Power and Explosiveness in your Legs.
- Discover how a good bridging workout will tire out your entire body and leave you sopping with sweat. Between the Gymnastic Bridge, the Wrestlers Bridge and all the variations I'll share with you, you’ll work every single inch of your being.
- Be able to amaze your friends and family with Incredible Stunts that very few people can do.
Considering how I started so inflexible and weak many years back, its amazing some of the things I can do now. And now you can do it to. This video shows a few moves in the course that are within your reach
If you’ve ever wondered how to do more than just hold a bridge for time then read this entire letter because it will prove there is no limit to what you can do. But even if you’ve never held a bridge in your life, read this letter because you are missing out on two of the greatest exercises ever.
First let’s talk about the Wrestlers Bridge.
The famous strongman George Jowett once said, “In both man and the other male beasts, the neck has always been the true indication of the quality and quantity of his concentrated nerve power. A strong healthy man always has a powerful neck, and he always will have one.”
The wrestlers bridge is a full body exercise. It is not just a neck exercise but it is the best way to build a strong neck, bar none.
I started bridging and worked my way up until a could hold one for over 5 minutes without much effort. A great start but this only got me so far. Plus I was always interested in cutting down the amount of time I needed to spend.
Studying some books by the greatest old time strongmen I saw a few pictures of them performing some incredible bridging stunts using weights, supporting a number of people, or both.
A bodyweight bridge will become easy for you like it did for me. So I began to add resistance.
Bridging needs to be progressive just like any other part of your body. It’s a simple concept that almost everyone neglects. Time is one method but not the only one.
I quickly found out a few things that no one was teaching. Such as where the weight sits having a dramatic impact on the difficulty of the exercise.
But there was always more to do. George Hackenshimdt ‘The Russian Lion’ performed a world record in the Bridge Press with 311 lbs. With that kind of strength there is no wonder why he was one of the greatest wrestler’s of all time.
How do you get the weight into place? There were clues but no instruction.
But adding weight is only half of it.
There are a number of ways to add resistance or otherwise make bridging harder without adding weight of any kind.
Now the Gymnastic Bridge.
If anything I would say this one more difficult. Not often do you find one move that requires great strength and amazing flexibility.
How would you like to develop the agility of a gymnast?
In my gymnastics class all the girls would perform back walkovers, but our teacher had men do something else like front headsprings. Why was this? Because men aren’t as naturally flexible as the women.
Because of my bridging experience I was able to do this move after some practice. After all it is just a quicker version of falling into a bridge and kicking over. I may never be as graceful as a woman but I was able to figure this one out.
There are so many different moves the combinations are endless. You don’t need to be a contortionist to get started but some people might think you are.
These same gymnastic moves can be done in a wrestlers bridge and vice versa. The sheer variety will keep you occupied for a long time.
Nerve Power To Strengthen Your Whole Body
What was Jowett talking about when he said ‘nerve power‘?
Think about how your body works. Every single time you want to make a movement a signal is sent from your brain, via the spinal cord, to the muscles telling them to contract.
The messenger is amazingly fast and you don’t need to consciously think about it to function. But what about the ‘highway’ it uses to travel?
If you allow it to fall to pieces it will be no wonder you lose all kind of athletic ability as you grow old. But what if the ‘highway’ is kept in the best shape ever?
Not only will there be no problem in sending messages but the energy and force of the message you send can transition over to every other muscle in a stronger way.
This means bridging will help you to become stronger everywhere.

I just recieved your Advanced Bridging Course and I have to say "Whoa!" You really put incredible information into this course that I needed.

I have done several neck roll bridging workouts now. I have to say it is a lot more effective than I thought it would be.

|I watched your Advanced Bridging Course and all I got to say is.....WOW!!!!!!
The things you demonstrated were in complete detail and some of them were just jaw-dropping. I've been a bridging trainee for over 3 years now and always wondered if there ever was going to be a course on this subject since i've seen just a few exercises in other books using briding exercises.
I love the course and i've been practicing certain exercises like your "Around The Clock." Although an awesome course it will a bit more difficult to do since I'am a heavyweight at 225+ pounds at a couple inches short of 6'. I love a good challenge and I believe one day i'll be doing crazy stunts like you have. This is amazing work and you did a great job doing some of the most dificult feats I've ever witnessed. Congratulations and I believe this will be a successful course.

|I have just started my training in the wrestlers bridge...about one month ago, and I am able to hold it for 2 minutes. I have also experimented with weights (dumbbells). I'm only at 35-40 lbs but am working on increasing that. I'll let you know as I progress. I have also almost been able to touch my nose to the ground. I can touch my nose with a bit of light support from my hands but I would like to be able to do it free handed. I actually am really pleased with the info and it's presentation. I was very surprised to see that for the most part i could do all the exercises just from looking at the book. Usually for me with physical movement that is not the case. I almost always need to see some one do it but the way each exercise was explained was very clear and easy to understand.

"Yes, but what about..?"
I figured you had a couple questions. Here's five of the most common questions I've received along with their answers.
Q: I’ve never bridged before. Is this course right for me?
A: Yes, beginner exercises are covered. You may not be able to use 75% of the exercises right away but you’ll make quick progress by following the first few exercises. Much faster progress then you make just going it alone. Remember, I started out stiff and weak. Learn from my mistakes and my successes.
Q: Doesn’t the wrestlers bridge compress you spinal vertebrae?
A: Everyday your spine is being compressed by gravity. Simply bending one way will make your vertebrae close down on one side and opens the other. Bridging actually opens up your spine making it more healthy and vital if you do it the right way. This is why you should always end a bridging workout with the plough. The easy answer is that if bridging screwed up your neck or back I’d be a cripple by now.
Q: Isn’t adding weights to bridging dangerous?
A: In short, yes. Any form of exercise is potentially dangerous. There are things you must do in order to stay safe. This certainly isn’t something you should charge blindly into and that’s why I lay out everything you need to know in this course. I have done some stupid moves and pushed the boundaries even hurting myself on occasion (I tell you how I did it and how to avoid it in the course). You get the benefits of my experience and stupidity. Plus adding weights is just a piece of the action.
Q: I’m old, young, female, or any other number of things that might make me think bridging is not right for me. Will this course benefit me?
A: I have a question for you. Do you want a strong, healthy back and neck? Then yes you can get the benefits. Just to prove it to you, here's what one 63-year old man is saying about the course.
Q: Is bridging right for everyone?
A: No it isn’t. If you have fused disks or have had surgery on your back this may be the wrong choice for you. Always consult with your physician before starting any exercise program. That being said I have heard stories of a man with several fused disk who finally stopped having back pain because he began bridging. Its something you are going to have to figure out yourself.
"Okay Logan, I want the Advanced Bridging Course so what's it cost?"
This includes everything you see on the right. All four DVD's and the workbook, a total value of $485.00. Even though the sum is greater than the parts you won't have to pay that much for this information.
And you can get it almost for half the price of the total value. Right now you can claim your Advanced Bridging Course for only $149. Or grab the digital version for just $99.
You won't be able to find this level of information anywhere else, and certainly not all in one place. If you want to go through years of trial and error that is your choice. You certainly won't be getting much help. Sure you can hire a gymnastics coach to help you with a few moves. Look back at pictures of old-time strongmen and try to decipher why and how they did what they did. Even with all that you won't get everything laid out in a simple to follow manner as its presented here.
Think about the strong and flexible body you can soon have. About all the incredible moves you can master using these step-by-step methods. If you look you can see that this is costs less than 42 cents each day for a year. But the truth is you will benefit from these exercises for far longer than a year. The techniques and moves you learn in this course will keep you in awesome shape for the rest of your life.
That’s why for this course I am willing to go out on a limb and guarantee you that you get the results I promised. And if in three months you haven't made progress you're happy with you can send it back for a full refund.
