Bringing you that overhead mobility you asked for.😉
Who needs overhead mobility? Just about everyone. Whether you’re a swimmer, cross fitter, Olympic lifter or volleyball player, overhead mobility it 🔑. Without it you’ll need to compensate with your back, elbows or wrists to achieve the desired movement!
FRC lift offs in forward flexion.
You’ll need: a dowel or stick and 2 yoga blocks.
Keeping the chest heavy and shoulders retracted lift your shoulders into full end range flexion. Hold for 3 sec. Repeat 1 min.
External rotation end range lift offs.
With wrist placed on the block, go into maximum external rotation, hold for 3 sec. Repeat for 1 min.
These drills should help increase the space in your shoulder joint capsule allowing for greater degrees of movement.
