This modification of combined thoracic extension and rotation also incorporates great stability components for the shoulder and core. This is a more advanced progression and will take some time to build up to. Having your feet wider apart will increase the base of support and make it easier. Start with your feet wide and bring them closer together as you are able to complete 5-8 reps while maintaining a solid plank position. This is a great progression for the advanced athlete and/or once you have mastered the previous exercises. Make sure you are confident in the stability and ability to weight bear through your shoulders before you attempt this exercise. Complete 3 sets of 6-10 reps per side.
We’re located in the same building as the Saint City Fitness CrossFit gym, so we have plenty of space to demonstrate and coach all of our exercises!
