WODdoc Episode 276 Project365: Fix Dem Lats Fix Dem Elbows
So sometimes things come by accident. Today, while my pops was on the phone I was mobilizing to keep myself occupied… my A.D.D. was creepin out in full effect. Because of my elbow issues (previous broke 3x) I am constantly working on my front rack. There is this one mobility I really like where you place a bar in the back rack position and then have a buddy drive your elbows forward. On the farm I have no buddies but I did have a jump stretch band. Check out what I came up with.
What I noticed was I got a huge stretch to the lat and the posterior cuff region. When I brought the bar from the back rack to the front I noted a significant difference in elbow height and I was able to keep my fingers on the bar with more ease. What do I attribute this to? Lat mobility. Lats adduct, extend and internally rotation the arm (picture being handcuffed) and the front rack is pretty much the opposite….. so try it out.
Complete 5 mins of todays mobilization.
Option 1: Static stretch 5 mins.
Option 2: Contract/Relax 5-7 secs resist strain, then relax 15.
Test/Retest using your front rack (looking at elbow position.
