If you have been a fan of Innovative Results for awhile, you are well aware that mobility is a big piece of our program.
The majority of us spend our days sitting on the couch, in the car or at the computer.
This sedentary lifestyle leaves most of us stiff and can develop into pain, if not addressed.
So, we have developed a series of videos to help you move more efficiently.
Today’s video walks us through 17 of the mobility exercises for the upper back and shoulders.
*disclaimer* If you have acute pain or pain lasting more than a few days, please visit a doctor or therapist.

This is great for everyone! From my personal experience and professional experience, a lot of people overlook the importance of upper body and how fragile and prone to injury it can be. taking 5-10 minutes each day or each time before a work out to do these drills can drastically improve upper body resilience and protect it from injuries. Another great one is to use the dowel and go in a half kneeling position while raising the dowel with both arms. its a great integration of upper and lower body mobility drill.
So many people sit at a desk all day and work and don’t realize what theyre doing to their backs. These are great to help open up the back and shoulders

Just from what I learned over these few short years of being a Kinesiology major I can see all of the major movements being utilized. On top of that, these are really simple stretches that’ll just help you feel better.
