After any bridging or wall walking workout, I feel it is necessary to balance out the extension a little bit.
This is best done by doing the plow position from yoga.
This can be held for time or rolling into and out of the position, or a combination of both. Here is a short but valuable plow sequence.
- Plow Roll x 10 reps
- Plow Hold x 30 seconds
Overall, people need more extension than flexion in the spine. So just a little bit here is enough.
Ideally, you want to be able to touch your toes to the ground behind you in the plow and hold this position. Like all stretches, your flexibility will increase over time.
