We are moving onto the spine this week. Start with the first video to get your mid and lower spine moving. Then, integrate that new mobility into a full-body move with the 2nd video.
We are moving on from our hips to our shoulders. Healthy shoulders contribute to healthy necks, backs, elbows, and wrists.
Sticky shoulder blades can lead to tweaks and pains in the shoulder. If your shoulder blades don’t move, you put a lot of stress and responsibility into the rotator cuff. Unglue those blades with this first joint rotation mobilization.
Once you have those blades moving, strengthen that rotation with this seated external rotation exercise.
This week, we are back to hip rotation. This standing Hip CARs (Controlled Articular Rotations) help move the hip joint along every axis of movement. Once that new mobility has been obtained, we can work on gaining new range in hip external rotation.
This whole month we are going to be playing with rotation. It sounds simple , and it is, but it is no easy. Most people who experience stiffness and lack of fluidity in their movements are lacking rotational mobility. Hang out with us all month long for new videos and for some movement motivation.
We are going to start with the hips. If you have been stretching your hips, but they never seem to get looser, try some rotation. Rotating the hips could be the missing link in your mobility program.
Next, let’s keep that new hip mobility by strengthening into hip external rotation. Try this little, but mighty move to help your hips stay healthy.
