Call Out Challenge! - Week 2 - Forward Wall Ball

Chest Forward Wall Ball

Once again, very similar to last week, we’re going to address a chest forward fault in a wall ball. 

First again, check motor control. Knees out, chest up, shoulders back and externally rotated.

Watch this vid to see how to fix it!
Quick recap:

Tight Ankles - Foam roll the heel cords, then hit the ankle mobs on the wall. Use a band this time. (go try and do a wall ball with ski boots on, same thing really....)

T-Spine - (Fix this first, Doesn’t need to be over extended, just flat)

Instead of covering shoulder flexion again as this doesn’t require as much as a front squat or overhead press, let’s work on some hip flexion (deep squat)

Hip Flexion - Lacrosse ball in adductors (High groin) & high hammy then hit the Birth Stretch on the wall for a stable set up.

Again...
-Ankles
-Thoracic Spine
-Hip Flexion

 

Remember to tag your buddies, clients, grandma and call them out each week! It's all good fun but you know you know someone who could use the help!

This will help cut out some of the guess work when it comes to narrowing in on tight areas.
