Thoracic mobility is so easy to improve

This exercise is a very simple way to increase your thoracic mobility without requiring any equipment (except a chair/couch!). Sprinkle this in throughout the day if you're feeling stiff while stuck at your desk.

 

1.Line up the back rest to the level JUST BELOW the point you want to mobilise

2.Place your hands on opposite shoulders

3.Take your elbows up to the roof

4.Do NOT move your head until your elbows/shoulders take it up with them

5.Extend back over the fulcrum of your back rest

6.Aim for 20-25 reps at any one time, the goal is easy rhythmic movement - NOT pushing yourself into excessive extension.
