Want to improve your posture🕴, move better feel better?🤸🏻‍♀️
.
Start by strengthening your upper back with those moves 💪🏻.
.
This video compares 2 moves for the same targeted muscle (rear delt) to strengthen the upper back and posture.
.
▶️The  move above shows the traditional reverse flys however ▶️ to gain more impact and contraction on the muscle I recommend the 2nd move underneath. It focuses on extending the arm back by bending the elbow and pulling the elbow as far as you can behind you & your thumb will try to catch up. You will feel a more intense contraction that will immediately straighten up your upper body.
.

💜 save it, do it, love it 💜.

Reformer overhead press in single & double-leg standing balance.  Change your elbow positioning (straight out to sides, 45 degrees back, or pointing straight back) for different muscular emphasis.  Multiple muscles of the chest/shoulder/upper back region will kick in on this move.  Play around to see what you prefer, what you default to and/or if an injury requires you to maintain a compensatory position. 📝Notes: 📌Pecs dominate with elbows straight out to sides. 📌Triceps dominate with elbows pointing straight down and tucked in at ribcage. 📌Controlling the return of the carriage is excellent eccentric work for the shoulders and upperback. 📌Single leg balance will challenge your core obliques and pelvic stability. 📌Goal: maintain a neutral spine regardless of arm positioning or leg orientation. 📌Standing balance on a bent knee enables the glute/Hamstring interface/ connection and allows for maintenance of neutral spine better than if the knees is locked straight.  With a straight knee, one could be more prone to using ligamentous stability rather than the muscular strength, however it would be a nice hamstring stretch! .😊special thanks to @carriespilates for inspiring today’s move! 😊

Nach den Urlaubs und Essensbildern wird es mal wieder Zeit für etwas Sport.
Die "Alligator Pulls" am Schlingentrainer sind eine tolle Übung für die Rückenmuskulatur. Koordinativanfangs nicht ganz einfach, findet man sich aber schnell hinein.
Achte auf die langen Arme, die eng am Körper vorbei arbeiten sollten. Spannung im ganzen Körper ist ein Muss 😉

Unilateral face pulls never occurred to me until last night, but I’m already an ardent fan.
—
Grab just one end of the rope so the other end is flush against the cable attachment/carabiner.
—
Keep your core tight and don’t let your torso sway.

Upper crossed syndrome! Nearly every single person I work with (athletes included), suffers from some degree of what’s known as upper crossed syndrome! Do you always feel tight/sore across the top of your shoulders/back of your neck? If so, then you probably suffer from it in some capacity as well!
.
These days, we’re constantly hunched over forwards, either working on a computer or looking at our phones! Our bodies adapt to this! The muscles at the front (think pecs) become tight and our thoracic spine (t-spine) becomes stuck in that hunched over position. As a result of this, the muscles of the upper back (rhomboids and mid-lower traps) become inhibited (stop working) and the upper traps and levator scapulae have to pick up the slack and bear all of the load (hence why you become tight/sore across the top of your shoulders). This negatively impacts an athletes’ performance and people’s ability to work/train!
.
How do we go about addressing this (in the simplest terms possible):
.
• Mobilise the t-spine;
• Lengthen the pecs and lats;
• Activate/strengthen the upper back (mid-lower traps and rhomboids).
.
It’s all well and good to go and see a Physio/EP/PT for an hour a week to try and address issues like this, but if you want to see noticeable improvements you need to make lifestyle changes. I understand that people need to use a computer and they need (more likely want) to use their phones, but if you want to make a change, you need to make mobility (T-spine, pecs and lats) and activation of the upper back, part of your day. If you spend the best part of 15 hours a day (accounting for 8 hours of sleep), in that hunched forward posture, then you only spend 1 hour a day (or a couple of hours per week) trying to improve your posture, very little will change!
.
DM any questions!

Pull ups are a compound exercise that works your upper body. The target muscle is the "latissimus dorsi" or the well-known lats. Your lats are the muscle group which determines how wide your back is. If you want to achieve a V-shaped back, then pull ups (or substitution exercises as Lat Pulldowns) must belong in your workout routine. .

MOBILITY MONDAY:
Everyone I've ever met has a tight neck and/or shoulders, back, chest, etc. Get as loose as a goose with these amazing stretches!

1. Sit comfortably in a chair or on the floor. Inhale to open arms, exhale wrap one over the other (like a hug for yourself), if you feel comfortable then (keeping elbows together) try wrapping forearms together. 
2. With the arms wrapped, in either position, press one ear to shoulder for a few breaths and the other. Do the same thing with chin to shoulder and finish with chin to chest/ elbows to naval. 
3. Inhale to unwrap the arms and open wide, exhale to hold the chest stretch (squeezing upper back muscles). Repeat with opposite arm wrap. 
Yoga Schedule:
Tuesday: 
9 am, core and alignment, yoga patch 
12 pm, Grace and mobility, inner space (small studio)
Wednesday: 
12 pm, core and alignment, karma tribe

WILL BE IN COLORADO FROM THURS JUNE 21 - MON JUNE 25

Resistance Band Single Arm Row
.
A strong based row variation you can do in the comfort of anywhere. The band helps isolate a fulfilling contraction in the rhomboid and middle back- an oft underworked area for many. You’ll recruit the traps and lats a great deal as well
.
• Setup: find a sturdy, wide base with your legs/anchor your non-working forearm high on your front thigh/maintain a strong & fixed torso
• Control each row, taking a moment to hold a peak squeeze at the top
.
Thank you @serioussteelfitness for awesome, affordable bands
.
TIP: rotate ever so slightly/continue the row at the top to chase an even deeper mid back contraction. Make sure you’re focusing on that vs. just compensating to take the pressure off. Stay stabilized.

💪 Muscle-up Pull and Transition in Hollow!

Heads up boys and girls, this #muscleup #progression is not easy. It requires strong #lats and #upperback and a solid understanding of the #hollowbody. @estradaflys posted a variation of just the lats pressing #gymnasticrings to #hips from a standing position recently that might be a good starting point. @pamelagnon posted something recently that covers more of the transition from the feet on the ground. Moral of the story? You should follow @cfgymnastics and all of the lead #cfgcoach staff.

Here are 2 unique rowing variations including a rotational bent over barbell row (I'm demonstrating in the first exercise) and a rotational barbell renegade row shown by my awesome client Leslie @lpetchlee1 in the second drill. These movements hold several unique benefits I highlight in my new article (see link in bio)
Last year I posted an article about the effectiveness of using the rotational barbell method to perform single arm Arnold Presses, a.k.a. helicopter press.  Since then the exercise has gained quite a bit of popularity not only because of its incredibly high difficulty level but also because of its effectiveness.  However, this same concept can be applied to a number of single arm upper body exercises including rows and chest presses. In fact incorporating the rotational barbell technique on upper body movements provides 7 unique benefits. 
1. The rotational barbell protocol is perhaps the single most effective technique I’ve ever employed for eliminating excessive momentum and forcing the lifter to use smooth, controlled mechanics. In reality it requires that the lifter perform the exercises in an almost slow-motion fashion in order to lock the movement in.  Additionally, the barbell can only rotate at a very slow speed regardless of how strong you are.  In order to synchronize the rotational component of the barbell with the actual lifting segments of the movement, the lifter will be required to perform the exercises exceptionally slow and controlled.  This does wonder not only for placing very high levels of constant tension on the targeted musculature but also for eliminating stress to the joints and connective tissue.  Whether you have shoulder or elbow issues, these are incredibly joint friendly.

Do you have a tight upper back? Try this series to to loosen up between your shoulder blades and chest. It feels awesome/terrible, depending on how stiff you are.

Lie length-wise on long foam roller, making sure to support your tailbone and back of your head. Throughout the series try to keep your ribcage down and pelvis and spine neutral (tailbone down and a little space between your low back and roller). Repeat each movement 5-8 times.
1️⃣ Lift arms up towards the ceiling, allowing your shoulders to round but NOT shrug. Then pull shoulder blades down around the roller.
2️⃣ Open arms out to a T. Don’t tug on your shoulders, but visualize that you’re trying to pull your sternum apart.
3️⃣ Snow angel arms up by ears, then all the way to your hips with palms up. Again, don’t hang in your shoulders. Your arms should be parallel to the floor.
4️⃣ Goal post your arms and make the same snow angel movement. Hands should touch over the crown of your head and elbows pull in towards your waist.
5️⃣ Same goal post movement but arms extend overhead. (Notice my arms aren’t parallel to the floor. That’s because I’m super tight and therefore limiting my range to what I can do without compensating by arching into my low back.)
6️⃣ Rotate goal post towards the ceiling, then extend arms over chest and pull elbows to the floor like you’re doing a bench press.
7️⃣ Scissor your arms.
8️⃣ Turn sideways on the roller and roll your upper back out from the bottom of your ribcage to your upper traps. Try with elbows wide, then elbows closed around your head, bias towards one side, and then the other.
9️⃣ Park hips down with roller on the bottom of your hips down. Keeping your low back still, arch your upper back over the roller a few times, then rotate side to side.
•
Seriously, this is heavenly. Give it a shot! Remember if something hurts (beyond discomfort)... STOP!

Include this into your warm up to switch on your smaller mid and upper back 💡 
Have suffered from postural issues for a long time. 50 pulses of the following everyday will strengthen those intricate muscles that assist with great posture. Will also help achieve any chin up goals you may have 💪🏽

One of my favorite accessories as of lately. Has definitely helped my pull-ups. ☺️ #BlindDogGym #Savage #Training #Gym #Athlete #Accessories #UpperBack #SundayFunday #MyHappyPlace
Bent over row warmup. Make sure your back is warm before benching!!! For more info go to www.wenningstrength.com #lats #rows #upperback #backday #workout
I’m sure you don’t see this one that much at the gym. Working on that V shape back.

#Shoulder work today. Some mechanical disadvantage #OHP. Ahrens Press on the eccentric. Superset with #DuffinUprightRow. Awesome external rotation on these. Highly recommend.

Starting to train my backbends more regularly now so thought I should do a little "before" shot. Need to work on my upper back flexibility so #ideasonapostcardplease

✌🏻Struggling to ‘feel’ your rhomboids or mid back? Try Overhead Support Pulls.✌🏻
.
If you’re like most, the traditional midback/Lower trap movements like face pulls, flys, rows and a variety of shrugs and raises just end up roasting the neck and upper traps.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These will leave you with the most delicious pump through the upper back that leaves you all kinds of “upright”.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Elevate the shoulders, chin tucked and upright, ribs compressed. Slowly pull the bar behind you - careful with the range so you don’t blow out your shoulders.

Try it out and let me know what you think

Repurposed this piece of furniture for an upper back stretch. Kind of perfect. #practicemakesperfectionirrelevant #spine #spinestretch #upperback #thoracicmobility #heartopener #yogaonthegrass #yogaoutside
Did 3 sets of 5 semi snatch grip below the knee rack pulls with 230kg/507lbs.Morning body weight was 89.1kg/196.4lbs on this day. I messed up the recording a bit on the first set, here's the 3rd instead.

This is 0.75" lower than the last time I uploaded these in my last training cycle (standing on two reds instead of a red and a blue) and these were done while having the relevant muscles in a more fatigued state due to altering the workout  because of my hip.

Some combination of knee flexion and hip flexion both to a decent extent seemed to cause it pain, however doing movements with only a slight bit of one of them like these rack pulls (very little knee flexion) caused no pain at all.

Apex Cervical Orthosis to the rescue on poor posture and loss of neck curvature!!
•
Most people struggle with a loss of neck lordosis and don’t even know it. Instead of your neck being “C” shaped, it becomes straight or even worse, a reverse curve. It IS fixable .. with your daily commitment and the right tools. Don’t wait until you get spinal disease, pain and arthritis to try and change.

💪Kipping Ring Muscle-Up SKILL work!
_
Independent #gymnasticrings on bands, working on staying in a #hollowbody while the #lats close the angle of the #shoulder. Goal is to push the rings down to the #hips with as straight of an arm as possible, without losing the hollow. This is key for understanding better #kipping #muscleup positions. 
_
Cuing “shoulders down” was for more #scapular depression, not to be confused with dropping the #upperback to the ground. Would have even liked to see a bit more #thoracic #flexion.

Tag someone that needs to #skillwork their #ringmuscleup!
