Banded Stretchs

Screenshot_2015-07-10-11-46-32

Try these 2 banded stretches as a great way of loosening your shoulder girdle and stretching the pecs and lats. Use a relatively thick dynaband tied to the top of a squat rack.

The position at the top is to stretch your pec and the one at the bottom is for the lats.

Try a minimum of a minute in each position, but don’t simply hold the stretch in a static position, make sure you make little movements in slightly different positions, relax the stretch briefly and then push back into it. Make sure you step far enough away so that you have some tension in the band and at times feel like the band is pulling you back in, feel though you are slightly resisting the movement.
