    Hey joe, ik you protract and elevate when training lats with a pulldown/row. Heard from different people/trainers (like nick Gloff for example if im not mistaking) that the active ROM of the lat is pretty much over when the humerus is in flexion without the scapula/shouldergurdle coming into protraction/elevation. Whats your opinion on that?

    Alrighty thanks, def understand the aspect of fully lenghtening/shortening the lat with moving the scapula – so would you suggest to let the scapula move when trying to isolate the lat in the best way possible – or sometimes let it move and sometimes try to hold it still? Would have thought that when letting the scapula move freely muscles like the rhomboids/lower traps can take more work dynamicly off the lats in the concentric

    Okay thanks! – have seen the yt video few months ago and studying physiotherapy myself i know about the rythm and general aspects of the anatomy and so on. What i have seen often and doing myself is to stop the ROM of the humerus into flexion when the scapula would have to move to be able to get more flexion in the joint. So im holding my scapula in a pretty neutral Position with static active work and only let my humerus go into flexion without much scapula movement.Think joe is limiting the flexion aswell in movements like a single arm pulldown if im not mistaking. Just courious about those different opinions tho
