Shoulder & Back Pain / Dysfunction Prevention: Lat Stretch!


This is the Latissimus Dorsi muscle stretch in 4 point. It’s attached from the upper arm bone, the humerus, tip of the shoulder blade, and onto the last half of the middle and lower spine and pelvis. To stretch the right lat, place the back of your right hand to your left side in front of you while clasping it with your left hand. Reach forward to your left and keep your elbows straight. Keep your knees wide apart and the back of your feet flat on the mat. Reaching forward lean to the right arm pit. Hold for 30 seconds, do 3 sets. Repeat on the opposite side if it’s also tight! This is great for increasing the mobility and function of the shoulder as well as decreasing strain on the lower back and Sacro-iliac joints.
