Today is another great college football Saturday. However, this is an awesome video I found from Craig Liebenson’s youtube channel (Thank you). He goes over some similar exercises we use with our athletes and clients. It never ceases to amaze many things are involved when doing these exercises to avoid pain. One minute it can cause pain, but when looking deeper and cueing appropriately the exercise can be used correctly without pain. Thoracic spine hypermobility is something that may go unnoticed and be viewed as a good thing. In reality, hypomobility at the T-L junction can have negative impacts on the ribcage thus causing the diaphragm not the function properly. The diaphragm is probably your most important “core” muscle and if it out of position it cannot work the way it was intended then the athletes and clients may not be able to stabilize appropriately.
