How is that upper body feeling?
You have learned a basic way of releasing through your chest and back and shoulders, you may be able to move a little better as a result.
This week is about utilizing all of the range you have created the past three weeks and getting a little deeper.
Remember there are many ways to gain mobility and using a Foam Roller is simply one tool.
Welcome to the Sliding W, now as a preface if this feels super tight or causing any pinching simply attempt to lay in the W position without a slide, or Lay your arms out into a T position instead until you are feeling ready.
The Foam Roller will help give you tactile feedback, be sure that as you drive your hands up, you can feel the foam roller under your lower back, notice if your rib cage starts to flare, and pull your back along for the ride. Aim for 3 sets of 8-10 slides, followed by a 60sec hold in the W position.
I’d love to know if you felt a difference after doing any of the Mobility March drills.
See you next month
