How does this apply to lifting heavy weights?
Overhead lifting requires multiple muscles in the shoulders and surrounding area to be strong and functional. It also requires good mobility of the thoracic spine.
To raise your arms overhead, you need your shoulder bones (or scapulae) to turn upward, permitting your arm at the shoulder joint (glenohumeral joint) to pivot easily and without torment. Numerous structures, for example, the biceps ligaments, can get squeezed and aroused if this development is impeded.
Adding exercises that challenge the muscles of the upper back and shoulders while also improving postural alignment is critical to healthy and safe movement – especially as more weight is added to those power lifts.
So before you believe you’re too masculine to even consider doing a sun welcome, get yourself to a yoga class and perceive how extreme you feel after a couple of warm up successions. You’ll be shocked what utilising just your body weight and a yoga tangle can accomplish for your body.
