You’re back and we are happy to see you! I and the Movement Vault appreciate each and everyone of you. Did you know that we have MV users in over 50 countries all over the world? And just think, we are just getting started with big things on the horizon.
The desk situation that most of the world faces every morning can lead to a lot of joint disfunction over time. Two of these areas of the body are your upper back and wrists. Guess what areas of the body we are optimizing today? You guessed it. It’s go time!
Equipment needed: 1. Foam Roller. 2. Padded Mat (optional). Today we are working on the flexibility, mobility, and stability of your t-spine aka your upper back, and wrists. We are starting out with a joint mobilization and muscle activation to improve your upper back rotation. Focus on trying to keep both sides of the middle of your spine in contact with the foam roller the entire time while rotating. Next, we are working on a very effective stretch and activation for your upper back and core muscles. Focus on rotating as far as possible in each direction. Really put that extra effort in to this one. Next, we are working on moving your wrist through your absolute full range of motion. Try to move through every available pain free millimeter of range of motion that you have. We are finishing up with an end-range stretch isometric technique to stretch out and activate your wrist muscles. Make sure to stretch out your wrists as much as possible before activating your wrist muscles. It is important that you don’t have a pinching or wrist pain in the front of your wrists. If you do, don’t stretch your wrist out as much.
