Winter MTN Power- Week 4

Why throw in the spine mobility work?

The upper back (throacic spine) is one of the biggest points of pain and tightness in the general public. One big reason why we work on it specifically for skiing is because changing direction and turning require harmonious rotation of the trunk (thoracic cage). Thoracic tightness with rotation and extension can reduce your ability to turn your shoulders while skiing. Thoracic mobility is also essential because allows for independent upper and lower body separation—the mark of an expert skier.

In other news... I am coming back! Slowly but surely. Come see me and maybe even meet Harvey on Tuesday's for the 5:30 pm MTN Conditioning class. I'll also be there for your 2/28 Saturday Sweat sesh. I can't wait to catch up with all of you! -Megan
