Been told I need to work on mine. What exactly is it?
Top Five Thoracic Mobility Drills to Improve Your Overhead Pressing - The Barbell PhysioUm, do you have a video or photo of this move? I am not following the concept whatsoever.......
No number two is not it.
Go down on all fours.
Place one hand on the back of the head.
Slowly move your elbow up and try to bring it as close to perpendicular to the floor as possible. You won't get anywhere near 90 degrees I don't think. Make sure the other hand stays rooted to the floor.
Hope that helps or gives you an idea. I found it did nothing. But #2 as suggested did.
Both but allow minimal twisting. So it didn't make sense as explained to me and didn't do anything both styles. #2 in the article posted did help.Just to clarify, I should only be moving the elbow up to the ceiling, or should I be trying to open my chest to the ceiling, while my off hand stays rooted to the floor?
Honestly these helped me the most:
3) Snatching the bell over my head. Staying tight and with the shoulder sunk, gentley pushing your chest forward.
Honestly I'm not sure if all those are t-spine related but they helped me look like I'm not trying to permanently shrug my shoulders and helped with fatigue and stiffness in my shoulders/upper back/neck
For sure dude. I'm not an expert in mobility. I just responded to the question for what helped me. I'm sure there are a bazillion excercises out there.I am sure there are different restrictions for different people, but I've found the arm bars really do not do much from my thoracic rotation. The biggest WTF factor for me has been the Bent Press and believe it or not, the Candlestick bridge. The CS bridge gives me an immediate boost in range of motion.
