Basic Anatomy of Stretching the Lats

Understanding the basic anatomy of the lats is important to know how to effectively stretch the muscle without irritating the joint by over-stressing it.

The biggest thing you want to make sure you are doing when you are stretching the lats is....stretching the lats. However obvious this may seem, frequently when people try to stretch the lats, they feel tightness on the top of their shoulder, which is an indication the lats aren't being stretched, the shoulder joint is getting to its end range of motion (meaning the bones of the shoulder are the limiting factor).

The lats literally attach your low back to your arms. The name 'latissimus dorsi', which is the technical name for the lats, literally means broadest muscle of the back.

It begins all the way down in your lower back and attaches onto your arm bone (humerus) to create shoulder joint internal rotation and extension.

Since the lats attach into your lower back, your low back positioning will affect the stretch you have on your lats. You can use these anatomical attachments to more effectively stretch the lats.

The Best Thoracic Mobility Routine

This week on Movement Fix Monday I want to bring a lot of pieces together to make the best thoracic mobility routine.

I commonly show a certain way to tweak a lift or a way to think about movement or a specific drill.

What gets lost in doing that, though, is how do you bring a lot of those pieces together. How do you blend and incorporate everything?

What I wanted to do this week was show you how I combine multiple drills for the upper back aka thoracic spine into a routine. This could either be done as a daily routine if you need work in this area or it could be done for 5 minutes during your warm up before lifting.

Simple Drills to Build Scapular Robustness

The idea of scapular instability is going away. Since the scapulothoracic joint is essentially floating on the rib cage contained within a sling of muscles, having it be 'unstable' would really depend on how you define stability.
