Target your SERRATUS ANTERIOR (Stop Ignoring this Muscle!)
All too often when we are focused on improving our shoulder health to prevent aches and pains, we focus on strengthening our rotator cuff.
We may also do some foam rolling or release for our pecs and lats as well knowing they can inhibit proper shoulder mobility.
But we can’t only focus directly on our shoulders if we have shoulder and even neck pain…
We have to realize that our shoulder health is dramatically impacted by both our spinal and scapular mobility and stability as well.
And one muscle in particular is often overlooked when we are suffering from neck and shoulder pain – a muscle that can impact our scapular stability and even be impacted by our thoracic mobility…
This muscle is the Serratus Anterior!
Here are 3 moves to help you strengthen this muscle as well as a bonus exercise to improve your thoracic extension.
