Hug Yourself

It’s just about Valentines day, so here’s another LOVEly mobility exercise for you!

If you ever feel like you need a little more movement in your upper back, you’ll love this one! Upper back figure 8’s are a great exercise to do to gain mobility in that upper thoracic area.

Give yourself biiiig a hug! Try to get your elbows to stack one on top of the other, or as close to that as possible. Now, imagine that you have dipped your elbows in some paint and draw a few nice figure 8’s with your elbows, and make sure to repeat in both directions. You should feel as though you are moving around your shoulder blades and perhaps also getting a little stretch in the upper back.
