Quick Tip: Ready for some Deskinetics with resistance?

Posted by on Jun 7, 2018 in Exercises, Psoas Deskinetics, Stretches

Did you catch our last Deskinetics Quick Tip, the Bruegger’s Stretch? If you’re a desk worker with some significant hunching patterns — (inwardly rotated shoulders, forward head, upper back flexion) — this active stretch can be pretty challenging at first. But if you’ve been doing it consistently, you may notice it’s getting easier and your body is feeling more stable. If you’re ready to take it to the next level, we recommend this week’s Quick Tip: the Bruegger’s Stretch with a resistance band.

The extra challenge of the resistance can help you get a deeper stretch across the pecs and even more activation in the upper back. And make sure to check out the beginning of the video for a tip on how to use resistance to strengthen external shoulder rotation, too. Try these variations out for a while, and let us know if you notice more alignment and less tension in the upper body!

And if you don’t have a resistance band, just a heads up that we sell them at the clinic. So feel free to ask about them after your next session!
