3 Quick Exercises to Increase Upper Back Mobility and Core Abdominal Connection
Following on from our recent blog 3 Reasons Increasing Upper Back Mobility Is Essential For Easy Squatting here are 3 Simple Exercises you can do at home to help improve your Upper Back Mobility and Squatting Technique.
The Wall Squat with Thoracic Extension
When done correctly, this will quickly improve your upper back mobility and squat technique. And the best news is you only need to do 2-3 repetitions of this exercise daily to see quick results.
Thoracic Extension – Back to Wall
This is one of those deceptive exercises – Vanessa makes it look easy but getting that movement of the arms out wide and up the wall, without losing contact and flaring the ribs is hard work. 6- 8 reps of these and you are sure to see results
Abdominal Chest Lift
If you feel more neck strain than abdominal connection with a traditional “Chest Lift” then this is the exercise for you. The support of the towel allows you to relax through the neck and focus on awareness of the abdominal/rib connection and opening of the upper back. I bet you won’t want to stop at 8 reps of this one!
Commit 5 minutes a day to the Easy Exercises and you’ll see improvement in no time.
