You probably have poor posture, you might be seemingly conscious of it and in search of a fast, simple repair. On this video, I’m going to point out you one easy stretch that you are able to do to assist undo that ugly, slumped posture. Doing this stretch on a regular basis, I assure that you’ll discover an instantaneous change in your posture that can have you ever standing upright and feeling higher general.
In the case of addressing posture, our widespread thought course of is to assault the weak muscle mass in our higher again and the tight muscle mass in our chest. Nevertheless, we frequently overlook our lats, which when tight, pull our shoulders down and ahead. All through the day as we work and evening as we sleep, we don’t typically deliver our arms overhead (which might create stretch on the lats.) As a substitute, we choose to have our arms down and tight by our sides. Thus, we have to tackle this tightness with an efficient and environment friendly stretch that may be completed day by day.
Earlier than stepping into the stretch for the lats, it’s essential to try the anatomy of the lats to grasp find out how to correctly stretch them. The attachments of the lats are the spinous processes of the T7 to L5 vertebrae, the iliac crest of the pelvis, the inferior border of the scapula, and the humerus. As I’ll point out later, to stretch the lats in one of the best ways potential, we have to get the higher attachments of the lats farther from the decrease attachments.
Subsequent, I need you to attempt a fast take a look at; increase your arm straight overhead, separately. See how far up it goes (with out forcing it.) I wager you’ll discover that its not very far and that’s indicative of what your posture appears like. We’ll come again to this after the stretch.
Now, bend your arm and lift your elbow up, bracing it in opposition to a door body. Then, drop your leg (on the identical facet) again behind your different leg whereas dropping the pelvis. Subsequent, to deliver the spinal processes farther from the higher attachments, rotate your trunk within the path of the arm that’s posted into the door body. Now that the higher and decrease attachments have elevated their distance from one another, you’ll be able to make the most of guide delicate tissue mobilization through the use of your free hand to maneuver the stretched lat forwards and backwards. Do that for 30-45 seconds all sides.
Again to that take a look at I requested you to carry out. Once more, increase your arm straight up overhead and spot how a lot additional it goes. You’ll even discover that you’re standing extra upright than you have been previous to this stretch, because of mobilization of the lats and a launch of the tight higher thoracic area.
This easy lat stretch doesn’t take very lengthy and may be completed in junction together with your different posture fixes that you simply’re performing day by day (similar to hanging from a bar or doorframe within the morning.) As I discussed earlier than, you’ll discover an instantaneous distinction by taking 60-90 seconds to deal with an issue that you simply didn’t even know was inflicting your poor posture.

Haha. A strange bird! I usually sleep with one arm up, so i guess I am half a strange bird. Is that a weird bird?
I love the Jesse intro. Keep it! 😄 Also, thanks for scribbling all over yourself. It's the best way I've seen yet to help me understand the anatomy and physiology.
Can't believe no one commented on Jesse LAICO! So fine <3
Huge exercise!!!!!! Tnx!!!!! Ethel
Something I don't get is why this exercise has to include a door frame. Seems like you should be able to do the same thing with a wall.
How much days work this
I would think hanging and swinging while hanging is just as effective
Bro instead of doing it and telling us "do it like this" He really teaches us to do it professionally like him and tells us why to do this and why we don't do that.
I love this dude ❤️
Lol keep the little guy
HAHAHA Jesse's intro loll
Jesse's intro killed me hahaha
That muscle that he grabbed seems to be very soft. And my muscle doesn't even seems to be a muscle
I am going to try this stretch
As a women is there an easier way to massage the lats
At this point Jeff, you need to do a compilation video of all the "do this everyday!" exercises you've recommended, because if we put them all together… there's no way we'd be able to get through all of them and still hold down a job and and a social life lol
I do yoga several days a weeks so I agree
Jessee Laico 's intro is worth watching ! Thanx a lot.
Dang… these are SO awesome! Thank you.
Um… is that a Nolan Ryan jersey in the background??
When he flexes his muscles the moon moves and the tides change
Sometimes I wonder if you have muscles that I don't have
What if I don't have enough of a lat to grab with my hand, Jeff?
You are very confusing to explain
Jeff, the shirt is meant to be on your body, not on the wall. That's tip is for free.
Admit it , you just like to draw pictures on your body :)
Every young–ish millennial and current genZ needs to take heed and stop hunch-backing over their phones all day. These people look like snails. Chiropractors are going to be very busy in less than 5 years.
These videos get me so hard.
Do you have any stretches or workouts that can improve my son’s scoliosis?
Jeff:. I really like how you explain what's happening…by knowing what and how the muscle is stretched…gives me so much more confidence in you.
Thanks…keep up the explaining.
I tried the stretch now…yup def going to be on my get-up routine.
I do have rounded shoulders…and I was specifically looking for something like this…with reason behind it. Serendipity, I guess.
Jeff ( and Jesse ) you guys rock1 Thanks for the videos
This great Thank You
My lats were mega tight! That stretch was so intense, that I had to yell. Lmao 👍🏿
No episode will be considered truly complete with a "Jessie Intro" from now on
Very interesting subject matter
I wish I had Jessie's coach 🎶
Incredibly humbling stretch definitely added to the arsenal of daily routines. Thank you
Jeff’s hairline has its own muscle groups
I'm a strange bird. I sleep with my hands up 🙈🤣
can you speak less like you are under direct enemy fire? Gives me anxiety, rly
pft, this just stretches the skin on my arm.
This ripped me good. Thankyou I needed this.
