Reaching, TMJ and Neck, and Pooch Belly – Movement Debrief Episode 61

Movement Debrief Episode 61 is in the books. Below is a copy of the video for your viewing pleasure, and audio if you can’t stand looking at me.

Here is the set list:

  • What is the difference between reaching for posterior thorax expansion and trunk rotation?
  • Can you explain neck and TMJ limitations?
  • What activities do I like for cervicocranial limitations?
  • How does variability loss in the thorax and pelvic affect belly fat distribution?

If you want to watch these live, add me on Facebook or Instagram. They air every Wednesday at 7pm CST.
