Many of us are limited in our Olympic lifts for a wide variety of reasons.  It could be ankles, hips, shoulders or many potential problem areas that have become immobile.  A big culprit is often an overlooked area, the thoracic spine (upper back).

Coach  J shows us three of her favorite mobility exercises to loosen up that t-spine and get you more able to sustain overhead movements such as overhead squats, snatches, jerks and presses.

 

They can also serve as a great warm-up on overhead days.  Try these out and tell us what you think.

Be sure to check out our full library of mobility articles and videos, including Julianne’s How to Fix Chronic Lower Back Pain.
