✖️ Improve your KICKSIT Mobility!

👉🏽 Likely to be either your thoracic spine or your quadratus lumborum (QL) that needs more range/movement to enable you to keep both hands on the ground during the kicksit.

👉🏽 QL – deep muscle at the back of the abdominal wall. It helps to:
– Laterally flex the spine
– Extend the spine
– Stabilise the pelvis
– Stabilise diaphragm

👉🏽 The QL connects to lower ribs and the top of our hip bone. So think about it – to lengthen this particular tissue I need to pull the connections points away from each. The standing oblique crunch does exactly that, as well as trains it to contract under load.

😊 I offer external services to these weekly mobility videos. If anyone is ever interested in a movement analysis or strength & conditioning 1 on 1 training or online programming, please feel free to reach out!
