Struggling with my bridge

hello there, thanks to ken since I started doing exercises for a week now I can already see improvements in my voice, but one thing that I'm struggling with is my bridge which is normal at this rate I think, but it's really frustrating when I'm doing vowel exercises or singing songs and when it goes higher than a certain range (I don't know exactly where) my voice is like disconnecting for a second (just like ken demonstrates in how to sing mix voice video on youtube) and then goes to my head voice and it's mostly airy weak sound rather than how it should sound. the interesting thing is I can already sing pretty high and it's not hard for me to do it but the problem is when I'm going through my bridge to sing high that's when my voice cracks and there is a big gap between it, so I wanted to ask if I should just keep doing the exercises and it will eventually get better or I should start focusing on some specific exercises. thanks!
@Furious_Phil I get it now, I'll start doing that, even though I'm just a beginner and I should not expect from myself to be able to do it right at the moment, but I'm just concerned that it'll stay like this if I don't do the exact exercises for it. here is some demo from what I'm talking about, it sounds hilarious but I wanted to show how it really is so maybe I'll get better solutions from you guys.
for me it sounds like you should try it even quieter and try to keep the throat open. You should have the yawning sensation in the back of the throat.
Also it will only stay like that if you keep practicing the same way. Remember practice is a not just repetition it is a chance to experiment and try different things. Don't fall into the repetition trap where you just keep doing something incorrectly over and over again thinking that you will eventually do it enough that it will be correct. Perfect practice is what builds perfection, and perfect practice requires focus and experimentation to get the exercise correct.
@HuduVudu ah I tested the links and they're working :hmm:
that's very true, I mean basically, the reason that I'm worried is not having a correct way of practice so I'm doing my best to do the exact correct way of exercises. I'm so obsessed with major improvement and I'm really working hard to do it as soon as possible. cheers mate
