What’s up familia 🙋🏼♂️🙋🏻♂️ your brothers are back with exercise number 5 of our shoulder stability series! Check back through the last 18 posts to check out the previous 4 movements! Today’s one of our favorites and one of the most important movements you should be factoring into your weeks.
Welcome to the Banded Facepull 💥
Why is this one of the most important movements Simply because of the amount of muscles integrated into the movement to make the movement even possible for you. So many of us are reading this from our phone with our head dropped down or at a desk top which means our upper backs are probably rounding and our heads are probably hanging a little too far forward last neutral alignment with your spine. If you look at the position of the body during this exercise you can see right away it reverses the rounding of the upper back while pulling the shoulders back and realigning the head and a neck back to a neutral position. Or maybe you’re planning on sitting or driving today that can easily put you in this position ultimately lengthening a lot of your posterior muscles of the back, like the muscles of the rotator cuff, rhomboids, entire trepezius, lats and paraspinal stabilizers. And what’s great about your face pull is it actively uses all of these with a little help from others. So how do you do it
✅Place your feet hip width apart and screw them into the floor to create tension up through your hips and core
✅Relax your knees and sit your butt/ pelvis back slightly to get your deep intrinsic core stabilizers and glutes to activate.
✅As you pull back, your hands can end up in a few different places to isolate different areas, but for here we are aiming for the hands to end about ear height making a 90 degree bend at the elbows
✅Think of squeezing a juicy lemon between your shoulder blades to get a better contraction.
✅Fully extend your arms but keep tension on the band and repeat for 15 reps
Give these a go, 2-3 sets as part of your warmup and let us know what you notice about the difference in your shoulder function! Thanks for dropping in fam 🙋🏼♂️🙋🏻♂stay blessed! @teamblessedlifestyle #thedailyfitnessfind
