Latissimus Dorsi and Serratus Anterior
The “lat” is one of the widest muscles in the human body that helps you in exercises such as pull-ups, chin-ups, swimming, and rowing.
The serratus anterior (named for its serrated appearance) is your shoulder’s best friend in planks and push ups.
A weak serratus anterior muscle can result in shoulder malfunction, neck problems, rotator cuff issues, incorrect posture, and even numbness down the arm.
A strong serratus anterior muscle will help you to achieve deeper breathes, proper shoulder function, freedom from neck tension, more range of motion, and stronger abdominals.
Regular massage therapy coupled with strengthening of the lats and serratus anterior will help to stabilize your shoulder joints for greater range of motion.
