CrossFit gymnastics, bridge holds and lower back health?
 
I have a question about the bridge hold or stretch that you encounter frequently in gymnastics and crossfit.
http://www.crossfitgymnastics.com/page/index.php id=421&menu=movements&page=videos

If I´m not mistaken this move places the lumbar spine in overextension?
My question is if this is really a desirable thing seeing as many or most other movements require lumbar stability and many under heavy loads like squats, cleans, deadlifts and so on.

What´s the purpose of the bridge hold and is it really appropriate doing if the other training consists of heavy lifts requiring lumbar stability like the ones mentioned above?

Thanks!
