Handstand Thoracic Spine and Shoulder Mobiliser

In the video below you will see osteopath Heath Williams performing a handstand thoracic spine and shoulder mobiliser.  This was shown to him by exercise physiologist Yujin Lim of Optimal Health whilst training at Elite Sports Performance.  This is a great exercise as one is required to stabilise through the shoulders as they mobilise their back and shoulders.  The reason this was prescribed by Yujin was to help teach Heath how to get his body over the shoulders so that he can progress to handstands more easily.
