Don’t Overlook the Importance of Thoracic Rotation – Try these Thoracic Twists!
Video by Michele Vieux
When thoracic mobility is mentioned, most people think of foam rolling or flexion and extension drills like cat-cow. But thoracic rotation is also a very important piece of the puzzle and one that is commonly overlooked.
Try out this drill before you workout on days you go overhead, front squat, practice gymnastics or for prep for other movements that require thoracic mobility (aka, life).
For those of you who sit a good portion of your day, this drill is great to use during your stretch breaks (which you should be taking every hour or so) and it actually feels awesome too!
