Another aspect to thoracic spine mobility. As rotational athletes, surfers require optimal range of motion in extension and rotation through the thoracic spine. This helps to improve paddling performance, but also helps to improve rotational abilities, which will allow for stronger more powerful turns. Improve your thoracic mobility with this movement. Get your body strong, get mobile, and go surf.
Restoring optimal range of motion in the thoracic spine is a necessary step in building functionally strong shoulders, or in the process of alleviating pain/injuries. In this video I address two methods to begin restoring thoracic extension. Get to work, build strong shoulders, a mobile spine, and GO SURF!
A quick video showing several methods of soft tissue work when attempting to restore optimal shoulder girdle posture. A brief description of the proper methods of foam rolling your latissimus dorsi muscle, and also some tennis ball work on Pec Minor/Major.
An introduction to several stretches that surfers can begin to implement in order to help increase hip mobility and range of motion. Optimal hip mobility is important for not only performance, but also injury prevention.
Spinal rotation is exceptionally important for everyday activities and for the overall health. Aram and Ruben show a variation of Feldenkrais Shoulder/Spine Integrator which will help you maintain and adequate mobility of your spine.
