In this video, and we’re showing you a very, very simple pec stretch, it’s a stretch for your Pec. The reason why you want to do this, a lot of the time, people’s pics are extremely tight, which causes the shoulder to rotate in. If your shoulder is rotating in and you try and do an upper body workout like a bench press, you are going to be putting a lot of load on the interior delt. So before again, you want to get the shoulder into this position when you’re doing bench press to keep everything safe. But if this is super tight, it’s going to be rolling things forward. So what we do to combat that is a simple stretch and the stretch we like to use just named it the Pec stretch because that’s what it does. So what Jay is going to do is she’s going to karate chop the pole just behind her like so.
So just karate chop the pole. That’s perfect there. She’s going to keep your body straight to just getting a little closer. Straighten that arm completely. Now as she does this, she’s going to turn away, so we’re going to chin here and turning away to what’s comfortable. Now with this pec, we want to be timing at about 60 seconds depending on your tolerance, but working up to at least 60 seconds is very good so he can see everything’s stretched out from her bicep and you warm sometimes. Feel this in your bicep. That’s completely fine. Also, notice she’s not grabbing the pole, her hands, not this way. It’s on an angle, so it’s angled down, so she feels that straight through the bicep because sometimes the bicep can be tight, which pulls upon the Pec. The Pec can pull upon a and making the restrictions through the shoulder.
So we really want to be just opening everything up and as you can see, she’s opening her body up. As the pec stretch goes on, I’m pulling her head this way. Perfect. And opening up and again, holding for 60 seconds with 35 seconds there. She’s going to hold that for another 25 seconds. That’s a perfect position there. So it’s very, very simple pec stretch. Obviously you swapped barb’s. I’ll just get jade now to swap arms so you can see it on the other side. Same thing, perfect position, easy and again, just adjusting as you need.
