Thoracic Mobility

Postby Karlos on Tue Sep 22, 2009 11:30 am

Mine is really poor. Can't really do any over head BB work, which sucks.

Is it tight lats which are the main cause? I know i should be foam rolling and i'll make more eeffort with that.

Any other exercises or stretches though?

Shoulder dislocations?

The opposite of cat stretches!

So something like kneel on the floor and with arms straight overhead, hands together on floor out in front - then push into the floor to arch your back and stretch it - It's difficult to explain properly - But my physio got me doing them - Which reminds me I need to start doing them again Image

thanks! i'll add these to my rest day activities. I really want to get OH pressing again, and eventually split jerking.

Thoracic extension over a foam roller works well for me.

IFor overhead pressing and especially split jerks, shoulder mobility is important too isn't it - So shoulder dislocations imo - I've started doing band dislocations followed by band pull downs which is good RC work too.

The link Richard/Wiggins put on my journal ishows them : http://www.dieselcrew.com/how-to-shoulder-rehab/
