1. Lat and Thoracic Mobility – Foam Roller
Foam roller remains still while you move, creating leverage points and mobilizing the thoracic cage and lats.
When there is poor posture at the shoulder girdle, tight lats are usually to blame. Tight lats can cause rounding of the thoracic spine and and overly internally rotated shoulder. Do this drill with smooth and coordinated movements to mobilize the joints and rid the body of dysfunction.
2. Side-Lying thoracic spine rotation/arm reach
This drill is great for opening up tight pec muscles, while also in-cooperating stability in the hip, pelvic and lumbar spine.
Often a lack of rotation in the thoracic spine, scapular stability and shoulder range of motion is a factor of mobility and coordination. This drill challenges you to move well in order to progress, which transfers back to training and can help get great results.
Perform this drill directly after the first one, work up to 10-15 repetitions per side
