By far, one of the most difficult areas to stretch is the middle back and upper back. Some people think it’s because the back muscles are too thick to effectively target. The truth is that many people do get tight in this area, and even develop “knots” that never seem to go away. They try to stretch their mid and upper back muscles, but unfortunately they’re using the wrong back stretches. And they’re hitting the wrong back muscles!
The classic theory of “Front, Middle and Rear” delt exercises is a good start. But, it’s not enough. Because the shoulder is a three dimensional ball and socket joint, you have a great deal of motion available to you on your shoulder exercises. You’re going to want to find exercises that tap into that full range of motion, and our Perfect Workout is designed to do that.
