I cannot tell you how many times I’ve had to stretch extremely tight Lats on athletes. You can get so much more range out of the shoulder into flexion (reaching up) when they aren’t so tight pulling against you.
Here’s a simple stretch to work on to release tight Lats.
The key 🔑 is with rotating back into it. That puts the Lats on an incredible stretch. If you’ve been around me, you know I like dynamic stretching. Higher reps. Lower duration hold. Especially before activity.
