Today we bring the release of our chest muscles with a fascia gun. The chest muscle group is located under the skin in front of our chest and is relatively shallow. It is composed of two muscles: the pectoralis major in the shallower position and the pectoralis minor in the deeper layer. The pectoralis major and pectoralis minor cooperate to complete the movements to be completed and then let our shoulder joints and shoulder blades complete some movements. In daily life, for example, I may be a white-collar worker. My daily work is to work with my arm in front of my body. I need to use some electronic equipment. For a long time, the movement of my arm in the front of my body will shorten some pectoralis major muscles. The whole person seems to have some chest symptoms. As a fitness trainer, if we train the chest muscle group for a long time, it will also shorten the chest muscle group. Therefore, whether for the public or fitness crowd, the tightness of the whole chest is very important.
The function of fascia gun: release chest muscles
Let’s first get to know our pectoralis major, which is a fan-shaped flat muscle. It starts at two-thirds of our clavicle, and there are also some attachment points to the position of our anterior sternum and the lower part of our abdominal muscle. In other words, the pectoralis major has three simple attachment points: the attachment point of the clavicle, the attachment point of the sternum, and the attachment point of our abdominal muscle. The muscle fibers at these attachment points grow obliquely to the outside and finally stop at the outside of the shoulder. So, we know the location of the pectoralis major and the simple direction of the muscle fibers. The above muscle fibers are inclined to the outside, the middle bundle of muscle fibers are horizontally outward, and the lower bundle of muscle fibers are inclined to the outside. Therefore, when using the fascia gun, we need to relax the fascia gun along the muscle fibers.
Chest muscle group: position of the pectoralis major and pectoralis minor
The above is the release of pectoralis major muscle with fascia gun, and the pectoralis minor muscle is located in the deep layer of pectoralis major muscle. If we want to release the pectoralis minor muscle first, then one thing you must do is release the pectoralis major muscle. After releasing the pectoralis major muscle to a good state, we can really transfer the strength of the fascia gun through the pectoralis major muscle to our pectoralis minor muscle.
The pectoralis minor muscle starts from our three five ribs, that is, the pectoralis minor muscle is located in our third, fourth and fifth ribs. Its stop is where our shoulder blades protrude. The tension of pectoralis minor muscle will pull our shoulder blades forward, and the whole person looks like a phenomenon of clasping and round shoulders. Therefore, when we release the pectoralis minor and pectoralis major muscles, the whole problem of chest inclusion will be well improved.
