Cat Cows are cool, but Spinal segmentation is cooler.
Two of my star pupils here demonstrating thoracic segmentation at an exceptional standard given they have been lumbered (pun intended) with 'tightness' through their T spines their entire careers as dentists.
To lock off the lumbar we have anteriorly tilted the pelvis (tucked the bum under) and then sat on the heels.
If you get a stiff back from working a desk job, driving, slouching or just life then this is a neccesity.
Outside of aiding better posture and releasing pain and tension this is a great drill if you're big in to squats, Deadlifts, bench etc etc. If you are constantly locking your spine in to place and forcing tension down it but never moving it through its full range of motion what do you think is going to happen to that rom? It's going to dissappear, good answer.
Volume up if you want my whispy vocal cues 🤷🏼♂️
A big aim as you start to own this movement is to increase tension throughout the body to really put some strength into that spine 🏻
