Upper Body Mobility For Runners
TRX & Stick

Our daily habits and poor posture throughout time will create a stiff spine. It’s important to have a spine that is able to flex forward, extend backward, flex right and left, and rotate. ⠀

Efficient running depends on proper movement throughout your ENTIRE body. Dysfunction in one area will cause problems in another area.⠀

In this video, there are 5 different mobility exercises. Three of the moves are using a TRX and the other two are using a stick. If you do not have a TRX, you can use another suspension system, and for the stick, you can use a PVC pipe or a broomstick. Choose which stretch feels the most comfortable for you.

This can be done before you run, weightlift, or a couple of times throughout the week to work on your upper back mobility. 


  • Breathe through any sticky spots. ⠀
  • Slow and controlled movement.⠀
  • 2-second hold at the end range.⠀
  • Repeat 10-12X reps
  • 2-3⠀Sets
