🔥NEW EPISODE AVAILABLE NOW🔥 After a week's hiatus I'm back with more Grade-A waffle on first class travel, white rhinos and puke. (Click link in bio to listen via Podbean or search ‘Learner Parent Podcast’ on iTunes, Stitcher or Acast.)
A little jump rope today to wrap up a workout and then working on some stretching and mobility afterwards. . Flexibility and mobility is something I’ve neglected at my own detriment after lifting for a long time, so now I am trying to undo some of the negative impacts of that as well as postural issues from long periods of sitting, using a computer etc. . here are some of my favorite upper body stretches. . The first stretch, shown with a band, can be done with a towel or cloth as well and is great for stretching the anterior/front deltoid/shoulder. Try to stay upright and feel the stretch in the front of your shoulder. . The second stretch can be done with no equipment and is a great stretch for the posterior/rear deltoid/shoulder as well as being good for thoracic/mid back rotation. You slide your arm through, palm upward and pin your rear shoulder to the ground as you rotate. . The last stretch can be dangerous so exercise caution but it is great for thoracic/mid back extension and overhead mobility and can help mitigate the negative impact we all experience from constant sitting, texting and rounding of the shoulders forward. . Try these out and hold each for 1-2 minutes!
