MUSCLE YOU DO NOT KNOW EXIST ️
Most people do not know about the subclavius muscle, but it can be the source of pain in the area of your anterior shoulder, biceps brachii, your inner forearm or your first three fingers. -
The Subclavius connects the outer and underside of the collarbone with your first rib. This muscle stabilises the sternoclavicular joint and also bring the collarbone and the first together when it’s contracted (causing a protraction in the shoulders/forward shift of shoulders). As the subclavius muscle is not exerting or initiating really big movements, there are none of such that are common to overstress it. But a rounded back brings the muscle in a shortened position. Over time this can make the muscle tighten up and eventually developing tender and trigger points. Sometimes when you are releasing your pecs, you might be hitting the Subclavius muscle too! -
How do you self release your Subclavius?
1️⃣ Use your thumb, apply pressure underneath your collarbone and dig upwards
2️⃣ Work your way from the inner to the outer collarbone
That’s it for this little muscle that no one takes notice. Just need some feedback guys, do y’all prefer to see self release videos or targeted stretching videos? LET ME KNOW 🏻♂️ - 10 days ago
