I’m into exercises that give you more bang for your buck since I know most athletes are pressed for time, and there are plenty of other training skills they would rather be working on. The ‘Spiderman’ exercise happens to be one of those exercises that can address everything from hip mobility to thoracic spine mobility to shoulder stability. It is absolutely one of the best warm-up drills you can perform and it’s a staple in our programs.
Check out the video below for a short tutorial on how to perform the exercise, what you should be feeling, and what to watch out for as far as ‘cheating’ through the movement.
