Do you have rounded shoulders, #kyphosis, shoulder or chest pain? * * 🤓 Check these videos out, the 2nd is a great 'simple and effective' movement for self massage on the #pectoralismajor and #pectoralisminor muscles. If your shoulders are rolled forward and you struggle with range of motion above head, loosening these two muscles before working on your postural strength exercises or shoulder movements is a must 👌🏻 * * Don't get us wrong, there are many other structures that may be weak/tight or have little control (especially the shoulder blade), however, because of the location of attachment of the pec minor (explained in first vid), when it is weak and usually tight, it can be difficult to engage and pull the shoulder blade down into the correct position. Failure to do this can lead to agrivation of the tendons and structures in the shoulder due to a poor position the humerus (upper arm) and it's articulation in the joint. * * 🧘‍♂️Try using a yoga block between the wall and the ball to create more space 👌🏻 * * 💆‍♂️Get on top of this temporary massage release, and start engaging your shoulder blades properly to control 'optimal' shoulder position, which will reduce those clicky, noisy, irritable, restricted shoulders 💥 * * Stay peeled for more videos on shoulder pain and blade control * * #8thelement #shoulderpain #shoulderimpingment #tra#trainsmart #movementcontrol #shoulderinjury #pecrelease #scapulacontrol #muscletension #painrelief #massage #headaches #poorposture #movementpatterns #pos#posture/a> #posture #trainsmart

Tight pecs and shoulders are one of the most common thing seen in people who works in a desk bound job. During workout compensation may easily happen when your pecs are tight, probably from those long hours of slouching over the desk with your shoulders internally rotated. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many may heard of this word “Compensation” so what exactly is that? Say for example if you are intending to do a overhead movement like raising your hand over the head to party 🤟🏻🙂🤟🏻 and your pecs and shoulders are so tight that it cant reach overhead. Your body will find the next most efficient movement to perform that desire movement which is hyperextending your lower back🤔 then you “might” develop lower back pain not knowing the root of the problem may be your pecs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So remember to release your pecs frequently to maintain mobility and functionality! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #pecrelease #pecstretch #fst #mobility #sgfitness #sgrehab #osteopathy #chiropractic #physiotherapy #shoulderpain #backpain #bodybuilding

PEC RELEASE There are many ways to release the pec major/minor muscles. The benefits of using resistance bands, is to help release scar tissue through contraction and eccentric movements. As the the muscle contracts/shortens, it allows me to hook the fascia/scar tissue and release it as the muscle slowly goes back to eccentric mode. Allowing the muscle to lengthen and release on its own. This can improve muscle growth, help repair and prevent restrictions through movement. . . .
