Hi Guys, If your looking a way to relieve tension form desk posture and improve T-Spine mobility, then this post is for you!
Maintaining mobility of our upper/middle back area is critical for the optimal functioning and performance upstream into our neck and shoulders, and even downstream into our lower back.
Maintaining our T- Spine mobility is even more important if we are desk bound for multiple hours a day. The flexed or hunched upper back posture from sitting can often results in muscle tension and discomfort which increases the chances of shoulder impingement, rotator cuff issues, and neck tension headaches, it can also hinder performance in the gym.
Besides limiting sitting and screen time, I recommend scheduling as many movement or mobility breaks as possible throughout the day.
These mobility exercises can be applied either before a workout, as a movement break, or to help your body and mind unwind at the end of the day. For more mobilizations please check out my Mobility Playlist.
Hope you find these exercises useful. Thanks for reading and please let us know how your training is going in the comments.
