HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR POSTURE!!!
[Back pain fix 💥 PART 9]
As we continue to fill your feed with BACK PAIN TIPS/EXERCISES/CONCEPTS. Here is an amazing post from @vinnierehab demonstrating spine control for better postural health. This one is on the advanced side so take your time with it. Bookmark this 📑 for when you progress from the basics✌. Don't hold back if you're ready for more😁
This is a program to teach you how to properly move your spine in order to help you eliminate unnecessary built up tension in your back/neck area! Major focus on spinal motor control (how well you move your spine)😏 This routine is fairly advanced and might require you to take your time with it so don't worry if you don't get it on your first try!
These exercises will help retrain your cervical/thoracic/lumbar spine to move in the same direction as well as in opposition (opposite directions which are both crucial to spine health)😊.
Usually at rest, the cervical spine should be lordotic (have an arch forward), thoracic spine kyphotic (slight arch backward), and the lumbar spine lordotic (slight arch forward)
When you do a tradtional cat/cow, oftentimes you load the spine and make everything extend or everything flex. This is great, but it is not enough
In the MiQ [Movement IQ which is a change in movement strategy to promote better health] version, I teach @christianguzmanfitness how to make different segments of his spine move in different directions (in opposition). So as one segment flexes, the other extends ✌🏼 MiQ back protocol
1️⃣segmental slow flexion/extension
2️⃣traditional cat-cow (same direction)
3️⃣ MiQ cat-cow (opposition)
Do 3 sets of 5 reps per exercise, take your time with it and progress to 10 reps over the course of 2-3 weeks.
. ⛔️make sure to go slow and controlled.
