It’s Tuesday and it’s go time! Today is all about rotation, which is the most important plane of motion that you move in. This is the plane of motion that most people are weak in, often leading to injury! We are going to get all the rotation today. Have fun!
Equipment needed: 1. Foam Roller. 2. Padded Mat (optional). A shortie, but a goodie today! Today is all about your your upper back. We are working on the flexibility, mobility, and stability of your t-spine aka your upper back. Today is a great routine for all of you desk workers.
We are starting out with a joint mobilization and activation technique to improve your upper back rotation. The goal with this movement is to keep both sides of your spine and ribs on the foam roller as you activate the muscles around your midsection, trying to rotate in one direction and then the other. Next we are working on an upper back rotation movement. Your goal is to try to rotate as much as possible. You will want to continue to activate your core muscles and the muscles around your back trying to rotate further and fruther.
You are amazing! Give yourself a huge high five for giving your body exactly what it needs today. I’m giving you a huge high five as well!
