With fall golf in full swing here in the Northeast, it’s important to make sure you continue to prepare you body prior to your rounds in order to minimize your risk of injury.
Keeping this in mind, we want to welcome you to Move Better Monday.
Our objective with Move Better Monday is to provide you with a weekly series that focuses on the drills we use with our in-person clients on a daily basis. The drills we’ll be focusing on were selected because we’re confident you’ll see improvements in both movement capacity and joint health.
This week, we wanted to cover a fantastic mobility drill for the thoracic spine - Supine Windshield Wipers.
We love this exercise as it serves as BOTH a mobility and stability drill for the thoracic spine. As you drop your legs side-to-side, you have to eccentrically control your legs adding a stability component.
When practicing, we recommend you start with 2-4 sets of 6-8 slow, controlled reps per side. As it gets easier, you can up the ante a bit more in the 10-12 rep range.
