Default 4 High pay areas Garrett?

I have the Z Health Neural Warmup Level 1 and 2. What are the 4 high pay off areas?

Medial/lateral tilts (#1 - foot), toe pulls (#2 - ankle), hip circles (this may not be the right name, #3 - hip joint), anterior/posterior thoracic glide (#4 - thoracic).

You could do the versions from either R-Phase or I-Phase. I often mix these up for variety and different stimulation.

What makes those the high payoff areas? Aren't the shoulder circles important?

I can't speak for Dr. Cobb's reasoning.

You might try reading the free PMenu "Kyphosis" article by Robb Wolf for a good idea of how thoracic mobility screws up the shoulder joint.

IMO, if people have what appears to be "shoulder joint" (glenohumeral joint) problems, they most likely have thoracic postural and mobility problems.

I add the PVC dislocates and kipping swings to my warmup, particularly on OL days.
