Today we focus on the Thoracic Spine and the Shoulders. This stretch will help your overhead position as well as your pull-ups and ring work. Most people are tight in the shoulders and thoracic spine from sitting all day and looking at their phones. This stretch will undue some of that bad posture. I prefer doing this with a medball under my back which I show at the end, but if you’re not there yet, use the foam roller. Go wider with your hands at first and gradually work them closer together.
Here are the rules for the 30-Day Stretch Fucking Harder Challenge. Each day do the deep stretch, post it on Instagram and tag some friends to do it with you. Post your stretch with the tags: #stretchfuckingharder #supplepandas #30daypandachallenge Tag me @coachpanda. Come back here to my website or vimeo channel to see more details on each stretch and modifications and scaling options. Try to stay in each stretch for at least 2 minutes per stretch per side. Remember to breathe slowly and deeply and start gradually and move deeper over time. Back off if it hurts.
