One of the most common positional errors we see in clients is in overhead lifting (snatch, jerk, press, etc). It takes global flexibility to be able to achieve a proper (read safe) position.
Too often we see people just go blindly into stretching their shoulders in an attempt to improve that position.
In order to attack overhead restrictions properly, a full assessment needs to be done of the T-spine, lats, delts, pecs, etc to find the limiting factor.
Today we are going to address one of the most commonly overlooked areas, the lats.
Often times we don’t feel the effects of a tight lat directly. However, it will have a huge impact on your overhead position and performance.
All you need is a foam roller or a piece of PVC Pipe that is big enough to roll on. Watch the video and use this easy trick before you train next time. We recommend 10-20 rolls on each side prior to overhead lifting .
