Quick Tip to Improve Overhead Shoulder Flexion

Updated: May 8, 2020

Shoulder pain💪💥 can stem from your rotator cuff, biceps, or labrum. While the location of pain can be felt in one of these areas, they are typically not the underlying cause.🤔 Limitation from the latissimus dorsi can impact the mechanics to reach overhead, which is important for a tennis serve🎾, a barbell snatch🏋🏻‍♂️, or simply just putting away dishes in a cabinet. It is important to get assessed to determine if the lats are involved. If so, try this active stretch with a Monster Band that addresses the lats at its insertion and origin. Then always make sure to integrate any new gains in painfree movement!
