How to do a bridge on your forearm. Hi, I'm Tanya Eberhardt, and this is how to do a bridge on your forearms. Doing a bridge on your forearms is going to deepen the stretch of your bridge in your upper chest area and in your armpit area, getting a deeper stretch of your pec major, pec minor, and your subscapularis. Come onto your back and set up your backbend. Bring the feet as close to your butt as possible, with the heels hip width apart, toes slightly pigeon-toed, hands underneath the shoulders. Push up to the crown of your head. Then, drop the right elbow to the floor, and then the left elbow to the floor. Make sure that you're not on the forehead or towards the forehead -- you want to be on that sweet spot at the crown of the head where the soft spot and the hard bone meet. Push up into your elbows to lift the head off the floor. Slightly walk the feet in towards the hands. Push into the feet to engage the quadriceps, and push the chest forward. Clasp the hands, bring them underneath the head. Tuck the chin under, and slowly roll down. Hold Bridge Pose on your forearms for six long and deep breaths, working the chest forward, and keep the knees hip width apart.
