Monday Mobility: Clean up your Lats

There is a lot of problems out there with head forward position and closely followed behind that with rounded shoulder posture.  With plenty of the credit going to to the pecs when it comes to rounded shoulders and internally rotated upper arms the latissimus dorsi is an often unblamed culprit.  This muscle stretching all the way from your low back up to the anterior medial side of the upper arm (humerus) and that is where it can be cause for blame.   It isn't just a back muscle but helps feed that internal rotation and shoulder forward posture.

Things It Fixes: 
-Tight anterior shoulders
-Rounded Shoulder Posture
-Shoulder Impingement
