How to Make the Most of Your Lat Stretches (Video)

Written on July 5, 2017 at 4:57 am, by Eric Cressey

I have a love/hate relationship with the lats. On one hand, you need strong lats for all sorts of athletic endeavors, from throwing to sprinting. On the other hand, if they're too overactive, a host of different injuries/conditions can result. With that in mind, preserving full latissimus dorsi length is important, and that's why we incorporate a lot of stretches on this front. It's important that those stretches are done correctly, though, and in today's video, I want to discuss one big mistake we commonly see in this regard.

Speaking of upper body work, I'll be delving into it in a lot more detail at two upcoming shoulder courses. One is in NYC, and the other is near Washington, DC. You can learn more at the following links:

NYC - August 20

DC - September 27

Hope to see you at one of these events!
