Building yet again off of our last two posts!
If you want to work on shoulder flexion mobility, you better first have assessed your shoulder joint capsule. AKA, do you have normal internal and external range of motion at the shoulder? If no, then that’s your starting point. Review our last few posts to get caught up!
But who’s to say you can’t simultaneously work on shoulder flexion? That’s the purpose of today’s post. This exercise is an amazing exercise to work on alongside restoring your shoulders’ rotational capabilities.
Really focus on feeling a stretch in your lats/armppit area. You shouldn’t feel any pinching on the back side of your shoulders at any time during this exercise. The only thing you should feel on the back side of your shoulders are your muscles contracting to try and pull your arms farther into shoulder flexion.
