1st May, 2012 — Workout — Short Bridges

Today went better than anticipated, based on my experience with yesterday’s results anyway. My workout today was the Bridges. In the book it says to warmup with the two prior exercises to your goal. My goal was to do two sets of the beginner standard of Straight Bridges, so the two prior exercises would be two sets of 25 followed by 3 sets of 50 of step one Short Bridges. During the first set of the 25 I thought I wasn’t going to be able to complete even the first two sets of 25. After taking a short break from the first set, my body warmed up to the exercise and I was able to complete all five sets for a total warmup of 200 Short Bridges! That third set of 50 was taken slowly in order to maintain proper form throughout.

After completing those it took me a few reps to get my shoulders loose enough and used to the Straight Bridges, but I was able to complete all three sets of 10 with proper form — Whew! —
