I have already shown how to use Myofascial release and static stretches to allow for better mobility of muscle tissues, however, sometimes this may not be enough to correct imbalances completely. The way the brain and body are wired to work with each other is of utmost importance, when trying to fix dysfunction. So the actions you do after you do the release techniques I have taught will probably determine how well your body and brain memorize and internalize a Functional Pattern. For example, if you release your Pectoral muscles for the purpose of correcting your posture, and then go do 200 pushups immediately after, you’re going to find yourself rounding your posture even worse than what it was before. An activation of the tissues ruining your posture is only going to make the problem worse, no matter how many release therapies you u do. Rather than re-enforce a dysfunctional movement pattern, lets find out how to rewire it and bring it back to it’s innate neuromuscular foundation.

In this video, I show you how to incorporate a corrective exercise to use in conjunction with the release techniques I have already covered. A single arm row will activate tissues responsible for the correction of a rounded posture in your upper body. I would recommend doing 1-2 sets of this about 3-4 times per week, after you have done MFR and static stretching with your upper body. Remember, this is a holistic system of correcting imbalances, so we need to use all the tools together to ensure maximum results. A hammer without a nail won’t be all that useful…
