Today we’ve got a great video for this third and final installment of the Fascia Cat Breakdown series. This variation focuses on an amazing stretch for your mid-back.
The mid-back can be a difficult area to release and my mid-back tends to stay tight, so this is my favorite variation of the Fascia Cat.
Mid-back tightness can lead to back, neck and forearm pain and discomfort. This exercise is fantastic for releasing your mid-back, as well as building your arm’s connection to your mid-back, which just happens to be the focus of our next three videos. 😉
The key to this exercise is the fascial length tension created in your mid- back and triceps when you bend your elbows without letting your body get closer to the chair and then again when you pull yourself back without using your hands.
You’ll have to use your body in a way you might not be used to, so this can be a tricky exercise at first. But the results are absolutely worth the effort!
If you try this out at home, I’d love to hear how it goes in the comments below!
See you in the studio,
