Control of Thoracic Rotation

 
Training rotation, more specifically - the control of thoracic rotation - is one of the most important aspects that should be a part of every training program.
 
 Improved control of thoracic rotation will improve:
 👉🏾postural control
👉🏾balance
 👉🏾walking
 
And control of rotation naturally carries over to most sports.
 
3 Keys to Successful Control of Thoracic Rotation:
🗝 Maintain a long spine and rotate on an axis.
🗝🗝 Don’t over-rotate - more is not better.
🗝🗝🗝 More optimal control of a shorter range is better than suboptimal control of a larger range.
 
Incorporate thoracic rotation into the pushing and pulling patterns to train higher-level control.
