Increasing Wrist and Elbow Flexibility Through the Front Rack Stretch

Have an athlete that has a problem keeping their elbows up in the front squat? Maybe it’s their mobility. Here is a great stretch to work on front rack mobility. Have the athlete place their elbows around the bar like a front squat with a bar that has enough weight on it to where it will not move. Push the elbows up for 10 seconds and then tell the athlete to push down against your hands. After about 10 seconds of this tell them to release and it will bring about a great stretch.
