Pushup & Bench Press Mobility
Break out the mobility requirements for this movement so that you can get in the best positions for efficient technique and skills development!
pushup and bench press mobility
Shoulder extension is a huge component of solid mechanics for movements like pushups, dips, and the bench press. Without sufficient shoulder extension mobility, athletes will have a difficult time maintaining proper form, and we often see discomfort in the front of the shoulder when extension range of motion is reduced.
The thoracic spine (upper back) is another commonly limited mobility area. For the bench press, good thoracic spine extension is critical to a solid arch in your set up.
