Serratus Anterior is probably one of the most underworked and overlooked muscles of the shoulder. It’s hard to even see on most people unless you’re an MMA fighter or a boxer. But it’s vital to overhead movement.
Here’s one of my favs for activating the Serratus Anterior and shutting down overachieve lats:
1️⃣ Take a kettlebell and put it on your shoulder with thumb pointed back at your shoulder.
2️⃣ Raise the humerus 🦴 (the upper arm bone that connects to the shoulder)
3️⃣ Really squeeze that shoulder blade trying to make it upwardly rotate.
Sets of 10, 1-2 sets for warmups. 2-3 sets if using this as a stability exercise.
Note. The kettle bell acts to assist motion once if goes over the shoulder.
