Bending backwards, part 1- low back and hips
This workshop will ramp up your backbends, while also teaching you strategies to prevent injury, with a focus on the low back and hips. We will break down the anatomy and mechanics of a proper back bend, and then address each structure in a step-by-step fashion. You’ll learn active flexibility drills, endrange control drills, and self-mobilization strategies, leveraging the peanut and the superband. A large emphasis will be placed on active flexibility and end range control, and how to make sure that you’re supporting your flexibility with strong stabilizer muscles.
