Tune-Up Tuesday Episode 31: T-Spine Rotation End Range Lift-Offs

Today's post is a follow up to last weeks post on T/Spine rotation PAILs/RAILs. You can click here for the link to that exercise.

End Range Lift-Offs (ERLs) are a step up from PAILs and RAILs in the FRC system.  Where PAILs/RAILs works to expand range of motion, ERLs focus on end range control. This helps to teach your nervous system how to use and acquire that mobility for daily use

Tune-Up Tuesday Episode 30 - T-Spine PAILs/RAILs

PAILs and RAILs are the primary tool in the functional range conditioning system used to expand someone's range of motion.  

PAILs stands for Progressive Angular Isometric Loading, which are isometric muscle contractions for all the tissues on stretch.  RAILs stands for Regressive Angular Isometric Loading and are isometric muscle contractions for the shortened tissues.

In this video I discuss the technique to one of my favorite T-Spine rotation PAILs/RAILs drills.
