Reach your arms

Nick | 02/05/2019 | 5

Overhead.  All of our moves today involve taking our shoulders into deep flexion.  So make sure you’re prepping your body (a little extra work with a lacrosse ball for those of you lacking that overhead range in the shoulders and spine) and listening to what you’re feeling.

Remember, much of the time when we feel restrictions in our overhead position, they are actually created downstream.  A great place to start looking is at opening up your upper back.  Have you ever wondered what those lacrosse balls that are taped together are for?
