The abdominals have been a popular area of discussion at PRI the last few weeks. When able to catch a moment of Ron’s “free” time, I asked him a couple of burning questions…
What are your favorite activities to find and feel your left abdominals and achieve a left zone of apposition?
Alternating Posterior Pelvic Rotation and Reciprocal Bilateral Wall Leg Lift
60-60 Sidelying Twists
All Four Belly Lift
Wall Short Seated Left Arm Reach with Balloon
Seated Resisted Bilateral Arm Pull Down with Adduction #4
“These activities are activities I would give for individuals with left rib flairs, someone who has the inability to achieve a left ZOA, for swallowing dysfunction, for PEC patients, for left unilateral neglect, for right upper trap tension and for someone who has an overactive right quadratus lumborum.”
Stay tuned for tommorrow’s question…What are your favorite activities to isolate the left abdominals and inhibit the hip flexors?
