Welcome back, your body loves for giving it exactly what it needs to perform and feel your best! Do you have text shoulders and text upper back aka computer shoulders and computer upper back? What does this look like you are wondering? This looks like most people today, a rounded and hunched upper back and shoulders rounding forward. We are going to improve this text/computer permanent posture position. It’s time to give your shoulders and upper back joints and muscles the love that they need!
Equipment needed: 1. Padded Mat (optional). It’s time to open up the front of your shoulders! Today we are working on the flexibility, mobility, and stability of the shoulders, t-spine aka your upper back and wrists.
We are starting off with an end-range stretch isometric technique for your pec muscles, which are the muscles located in the front of your shoulders/chest. Make sure you are as stretched out as possible, without pain, and then start to activate your muscles. Next we are working on a t-spine activation movement. Slowly lift one millimeter of your chest off of the mat at a time and then slowly lower back down. Finally, we are finishing up with a wrist full range of motion activation technique. Move your wrist in as big of a circle as possible, activating all of the muscles around your wrist.
