(FACE PULL} – The exercise you’re not doing!Why you should include the face pull into your exercise programmer right now.Do you suffer from shoulder pain that stops you from shoulder pressing or bench pressing?You should add this movement into your overall programme to help imbalances around the shoulder girdle. If you would like how to understand how the shoulders work, read below. If the “science stuff” doesn’t do it for you skip the middle and go straight to the end. 😀------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The structure of the shoulder muscles:Trapezius (Traps) – originates at the back of the skull, Cervical (C7) and thoracic (T) spine and inserts into the spine of the scapula this helps elevate, retract and depress the shoulder girdle.Rhomboids – Originates from C7 and T1-T5 and inserts in the medial border of the scapula and is responsible for postural stabilisation of the scapulae and works with the traps to help retract the shoulder girdle.Serratus minor– originates in the front of the ribs 1-8 and inserts on the anterior surface of the medial border of the scapula and helps with protractionDeltoid – originates on the outer scapula spine on acromion process and outer clavicle this inserts laterally onto of the humerusRotator cuff muscles (a group of muscles)Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, teres minor and subscapularis which all originate from the scapula and insert laterally on the head of the humerus.All of these muscles help stabilise the shoulder joint however the subscapularis helps with medial roatation, the supraspinatus helps with abduction and infraspinatus and teres minor help with lateral rotation.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------I did warn you, right!?!So, if you read the above you’re interested in learning a little anatomy or you’re completely confused??How do you put this into practice, watch the video below and then book in with one of the team to run through the correct cueing points for the movement.Caution don’t go to heavy with this movement!If you’re going solo, three sets of eight to ten reps will do the trick.✅We hope you enjoyed this video, show us some “love” and like this. Stay tuned, we are going to bring you lots of useful exercises over the following days that you can use right now<<
