Elbow Extension

by | Apr 20, 2018 | Mobility | 0 comments

This week we’re giving you a move to help improve pressing motions and running motions by opening up those shoulders and lats.

The Move

You want to clip your Slastix so it creates a loop at elbow height of your client. Have your client face away from the anchor point and place the Slastix around their elbow.
To be able to open up that shoulder, have your client rest their hand on their hip or at the small of their back. Then slowly lean into the stretch, away from the anchor point.
Hold this for 30 seconds, then back off for a moment and go back into the stretch.

The next time your client leans into the stretch you will see them open up a little bit more through the lat and the front part of the shoulder.

Pro Tips: Watch to make sure your client does not shrug their shoulders. Make sure your client maintains breathing through the entire stretch.
