Centerworks® “Secret” Training Tips for Mobilizing the Ribcage
Part Four: Lateral Movement of the Spine and Ribs
There is a lot to think about in order to execute great lateral, side-bending movements.
This is not a direction our upper body moves in much for daily life activities. But there is a side-bending lateral motion that happens in the hips and pelvis that is vital for good gait mechanics to walk and run.
Since our upper back should have the most mobility for our spine, and we only get stronger in the ranges of motion that we move in, if we never do anything that involves a side bend, we’ll never have access to the strength and support these muscles have to offer us.
