Thursday, October 6

Don’t forget to place your order for your Barbells for Boobs t-shirt or tank top. We’re taking orders until October 14! All profits from the sale of these shirts go directly to the charity. Also, you don’t have to buy a shirt to participate. You can just show up on October 29 for the event. If you’d like to donate separately, you can do that here. And don’t forget to wear your costume to workout on the 29th!

We’re going to work some hip and thoracic spine mobility before the workout today. If you have trouble getting into a good overhead position it may be due to a lack of thoracic mobility. (It could be your shoulders or lats or something else too). The way to approach mobility work on yourself is to try something and see if you notice improvement. You have to give it enough effort and time, but if you are noticing even small changes, stick with it. If you’re not making changes, maybe it’s time to try something else.

Here’s a quick thoracic spine mobility routine you can incorporate into your warmup or cool down if you don’t know where to start. No roller or ball required!
