Sue Falsone is known among her peers as the go-to gal for T-spine knowledge, and in this lecture, The Thoracic Spine — The Missing Link to Core Stability, we learn how she got that reputation. First we get a brief guide to the spinal structure, and then she goes deeper with a education on how to use t-spine mobility and breathing to encourage core stability. Note: She references images from the pdf in her lecture, and you may want to have that handy the first time through.
Sue Falsone, who brought us the Thoracic Spine lecture, returns to look a little higher at the cervical spine. As she’s developing the anatomy knowledge for us, she also encourages us to look below, through the t-spine and into the lumbar region. She describes the anatomy, then tells of a few of her favorite exercises dedicated to the area.
