In this video, I wanted to go through a simple Coracobrachialis Stretch that you can do anywhere in sitting or in standing position.
The Coracobrachialis is a deep muscle within the shoulder that oftentimes gets tight and it affects the shoulder position. This one that I will show you is a really simple stretch that you can do to target that coracobrachialis if it’s tight on you.
CLICK HERE to watch the YouTube video.
Stretching at the coracobrachialis will put the shoulder in a better position and will put your body into a better posture. I will get Donnalee to demonstrate the exercise.
With this one, instead of bringing your arms straight out to the side, you are going to bring it back about 45 degrees from straight out to the side. You should feel a light stretch around that biceps area. You are looking for a light stretch and you are going to hold it up for a a couple of seconds and come back down and you can go back into it again. Looking for light stretch for a couple of seconds and then coming back down.
Coracobrachialis Intensified Stretch
Now if you want to intensify the stretch, just bring your hand in and then go through that same movement. You are trying to keep that wrist straight and you will feel a light stretch and back down. You will be feeling a light stretch underneath between the biceps and also in the triceps area.
This stretch is a little different than your quadriceps or your calves where you get a really strong stretch where you are really stretching a really large muscle. Now with coracobrachialis, we are stretching a really small muscle and you’ll feel a light stretch and you don’t want to overdo it, you just want go to a point where you feel light stretch and hold that for about 2 to 5 seconds and then go back down. Start it off with 3 repetitions and you can progress it into 5 repetitions.
Give this stretch a go. See if you feel the stretch. If you’re able to feel the stretch, it’s a good chance that you need to do the stretch. Doing this stretch will help you with your shoulder health and will also help you when it comes to your posture.
