    Oh, in wrestling we used to call those neck bridges "back bridges" and when your face and belly face the ground they were "front bridges"

    Makes your spine more mobile. If your neck is envolved its stretches/strengthens your neck as well.

    back bridges are amazing. i did them everyday for a while. now i do them as a part of a warm up or warm down. they made my back a lot more flexible and noticably stronger. i dont have back pain really any more, and i feel i have more energy just by doing them.
