30 Day MFR Challenge- Unlocking The Shoulder and Scapula

Hello and welcome to the Functional Patterns 30 day Myofascial Release challenge. For the next 90 days, we will be releasing 30 days of footage that will help you with myofascial dyfunctions. Definitely not something to be missed.

For this video we address a commonly released but not fully understood region of the body: Posterior Scapulae.

Stay tuned as more videos will be released in the coming days randomly!

Release intentionally, not habitually,

    Hi. I appreciate what you do. I am a LMT and releasing muscle tension release is what I do. You say that u used to tell people not to release certain muscles luke the traps/back muscles (supra/infra spinatus/ rhomboids, teres minor because the need to be tonic to subsequently pull the shoulders back. There is a differnce between the muscle strength/tension that we want to be there to pull the shoulders back and unhealthy muscle tension. Tonicity is good muscle tension caused by adhessions and trigger points is not. So what we need to release is the trigger point (which is what u are releasing with the lacrose ball). Of course we need a proper balancing between the muscles in the front the pull shoulders forward and the muscles in the back the pull the muscles back…but releasing of trigger points in the pecs ect and back muscles is necessary for proper function. I can explain this better if it is bot clear enough. Again..so thankful for ur youtube channel and your desire to teach others!

    I started the Functional Training System two months ago. Based on what you just said, is there anything that I should change in the program?

      Hey I just recently stumbled upon the above video. I’m an older baseball player that used to be able to throw hard without pain. I have been dealing with shoulder improvement the past several years and have been looking for ways to help me open up the impinged area, which is with a raised arm in the cocked throwing position. Anybody have any advice?

    Going to try to visit Jaque Fresco for the second time. Do you have any thing I should know or questions I can ask him? Thank you Naudi for continually spreading your wisdom.

    Finally after 1 year of wondering why my serratus anterior on the left arm gets tight whenever I drive for more than an hour I got it. I have been overusing it instead of the mid and lower trapezius and to stabilize the scapula due to focusing only on standing bridge with hands up Needed the shoulder retracton too. So I got the opposite problem. Cheers 🙂

    Hello! Thank for the tips! I find getting up under the armpit and hitting the lateral scapular border to reach the attachments of the infra spinatus teres minor and major really helps release over worked rotator cuff trigger points!
