Equipment needed: 1. Foam Roller. Today is all about the muscles that are located on the side of your upper body! This is also a great low back and upper body routine. We are working on the flexibility, mobility, and stability of your lateral body.
We are staring off with a muscle/fascia release for the muscles located on the side of your upper body. These muscles include your obliques, quadratus lumborum, lats, and posterior rotator cuff muscles. Next we are working on side bend stretch holds. These aren’t your grandma’s side bend holds. Focus on squeezing the muscles on one side of your body as you stretch out the muscles on the other side of your body. Keep your arm punching up and over. We are then working on one of the best shoulder range-of-motion and activation movements you can do. Focus on slow and controlled movement. You want to keep your shoulder blades aka scapulae engaged the entire time and move through your absolute full range of motion. We are finishing up with a great activation and stretch for all of the muscles around your low back. Focus on activating all of your core muscles as you move through your full range of motion.
The biggest hurdle to success is consistency. Stay consistent and your body will thank you for it!
