Bridge is an exercise in gymnastics. Many variations of this exercise are employed throughout the world, most commonly the balancing of the body on the head and feet.

Hands are occasionally used instead of or along with the head. It is effective in improving lower back strength. Examples of bridging in sportive or self-defense applications are seen in Kung Fu, Yoga, Judo, Brazilian jiu jitsu, Capoeira, mixed martial arts, and wrestling.
