The nature of grappling and jiu jitsu often causes tightness in the chest and shoulders, which can lead to rounded shoulders and poor posture.
The Tablemaker movement helps counteract this by opening the chest and shoulders. It will also build strength in the glutes, which is essential for powerful bridging and other jiu jitsu movements.
This video explains all of the details of the Tablemaker pose, and shows you how you can quickly and simply incorporate it into your BJJ rehab/stretching/conditioning routine.
