Video by Travis Ewart

Invictus Athlete gymnastics coach Travis Ewart describes and demonstrates the Band-Assisted Upper Anterior Chain Opener, more easily referred to as “Banded Scarecrows”.

With pushing and pressing comes a tightened Upper Anterior Chain, and to help alleviate some of this tension we bring you the Band-Assisted Upper Anterior Chain Opener (or Banded Scarecrow).

Apply this technique each day before your workout and see the results over time turn your poor thoracic mobility into mobility you embrace! Spend approximately two minutes to complete this stretch.
