-Hip & T-Spine Mobility All In One!-
Here’s a great dynamic movement that will improve mobility in both your hips and thoracic spine. I call it the “Lateral Lunge with Contralateral Reach.” It’s a relatively easy movement that you can add to your routine as a warm-up drill. You can also add a dumbbell on the reaching side to make it a more challenging movement, or perform it with a pair of light dumbbells.
To perform the Lateral Lunge with Contralateral Reach:
- Take a big step to your left.
- Plant the foot (keeping it straight ahead), and bend the knee slightly as you hinge forward from the hips.
- Keep your back flat, reach towards your foot with your right arm, and extend your leftt arm to the ceiling (sky, in my case).
- Exhale as you stand up, and repeat the movement to the right.
