I'm Jeremy Shore for livestrong.com, and this is how to improve upper torso mobility. Improving upper torso mobility is important for staying injury-free and optimizing athletic performance. Two excellent ways to improve upper torso mobility include kneeling thoracic rotations and medicine ball rotations. Kneeling thoracic rotations are a great warm up and mobility exercise while med ball rotations improve range of motion while improving the rotational strength and power of the trunk. Let me show you. For our mobility exercise, we'll perform a thoracic rotation. Come down onto all fours with hands directly below the shoulders, knees directly below the hips and a flat back. Bring one hand lightly behind the head and then rotate the elbow towards the opposite arm and then rotate the opposite direction, bring the elbow and eyes towards the ceiling. Repeat for six to eight repetitions. Then, switch sides; we'll bring the other hand lightly behind the head and rotating towards the opposite arm for six to eight repetitions. Next, we'll incorporate a mobility exercise, called the medicine rotation. We'll stand tall with feet firmly planted about shoulder width apart, the chest up. Extend your arms out, receive the ball on one side, rotates the opposite releasing it to a partner or against the smooth reinforced wall, accelerating and releasing it.
