Wednesday Rehab – Serratus: Powerhouse of the Shoulder

In the previous 2 articles,  we have really explored what the movement of the shoulder looks like if Serratus Anterior functions poorly – you will see winging, excessive early elevation, poor scapular posture such as overactive pecs closing the chest, poor elevation preventing good upward rotation, and poor overhead press with the elbow not sitting directly under the load being pushed.

Today’s video gives a functional anatomy summary of what the role of Serratus Anterior is, with Chris and Mark using skeleton to demonstrate protraction and upward rotation, next week we begin the Serratus Activation Series,  a heap of drills to wake up the sleepy, lazy main player of the fully functional shoulder!
