During my last blog I discussed some exercises that could be utilized to improve thoracic spine mobility. I ran across these pictures from the Texas Baseball Ranch of athletes performing some drills working to improve their thoracic spine.
This week I wanted to discuss a number of drills which are helpful in improving the mobility and stability of an athlete’s spine and back. As I have mentioned before, different sports place different demands on an athlete. While nearly all sports require an athlete to rely on his/her stability and mobility of the lower half, not all require as much stability and mobility in the upper half. For throwing athletes such as baseball players, the tremendous demands placed on their upper half requires superior stability and mobility in order to stay healthy and continue to perform at the best of their ability.
