  • Recommendation- Often times people will compensate a lack of thoracic rotation with lumbar rotation. If you are trying to isolate thoracic rotation from lumbar rotation, you must “lock” up the lumbar spine. This can be accomplished if one assumes a quadruped position similar to that in your video, but then sits back onto their heels. This movement causes posterior pelvic tilt which will “lock” the lumbar spine. Gray Cook uses thoracic rotations as a break-out session in his SFMA, but has his patients assume the position I described earlier.
