Thoracic Mobility with Coach Ben Moore

Definition of thoracic 

:of, relating to, located within, or involving the thorax 

When your thoracic spine is tight and cannot extend and rotate properly, this shifts pressure to the shoulder joint, causing hyper mobility. Include these stretches into your warmup and cool down routines to increase thoracic mobility and improve your ability to lift your elbows up when in a front rack position with a barbell. You can also prevent shoulder injury by maintaining mobility so you don’t overcompensate by misusing other muscle groups and body parts.
