posted in: shoulder, The Lab | 0

The front rack position is more than just getting your elbows up and in front of you. A stable shoulder position in the front rack consists of partial flexion and a great deal of external rotation at the shoulder. To achieve this requires adequate length in the tricep and lats, as well as unrestricted scapular upglide. In this edition of Midweek Mobility, Movement Rx’s Dr. Theresa Larson, DPT demonstrates two simple techniques to improve mobility in these two critical areas. as well as practical ways to train the position, once sufficient mobility is achieved.
