Sport is a physical activity to maintain physic fitness and health. Physical fitness can be obtained with correct physical activity, one of which is by doing gymnastic movements. Bridge up is one of the movements in gymnastics on the floor with a supine body shape or posture which rests on both hands and legs with knees bent. The correct movement is a movement that is in accordance with the anatomy and physiology of the human body, coupled with a mechanical study of efficient movement. In terms of biomechanics, the mechanical laws of motion are: 1) center of gravity, 2) balance and 3) force. It takes coordination between balance, flexibility and good strength to be able to make movement bridge up. Efforts to avoid mistakes that can result in injury can be done by applying the principles of proper training and adequate stretching. In the learning process, a teacher/lecturer must pay attention to the condition of students by providing step by step exercises or a series of movements from simple to complex.
