So you’re trying to improve your lat flexibility with stretches like this or even some soft tissue mobilizations with a foam roller but did you know you can also use an eccentric curl up to help as well?? . Your lat muscles are the big “V” shaped muscles that run from your low back to your upper arm. Poor flexibility of this muscle will limit how far you can raise your arm over your head – meaning it will affect your ability to show good technique with overhead lifts like the push press or getting your elbows up in a front squat.?? . To perform the eccentric curl up – start with an underhand grip on the bar. Jump to the top position before lowering slowly in about 5 seconds. During this lower your muscles are lengthened under tension which has been shown to help improve flexibility just like stretching.?? . Besides feeling for improvement in your lifts, you can also gauge your flexibility improvement by performing this wall test with your palms up while grabbing a PVC pipe every week or so.? . If you’d like to learn more ways to improve flexibility of the lats (and the research behind eccentric work for flexibility improvements)- check out the blog article linked in my bio?? . Shout out to @3d4medical with their app Complete Anatomy for the visual of the body?? _________________________________________ This is the 328th #SquatUclub eligible post!! Remember everyday – “like,” & comment using the hashtag #squatUclub ASAP and I’ll pick one person to start working with on whatever help you need (squat technique, an achy hip with deadlifts, etc).
