    Trapezius shortening

    I'm on the old side of 25 and I feel like I'm starting to lose flexibility. The one place I really notice it is my traps seem to be shortening. So instead of my collar bones sitting horizontally they're at a bit of an angle with the shoulder joint higher than the other end.

    This is the only example I could find of what I mean. (Not really nsfw but not totally safe either)
    Spoiler:



    Once you tear your eyes away from the silicone see how her collar bones aren't flat? Are there any specific stretches to address this? I can't remember any that work in that specific angle.

    I've tried doing oni kudaki (standing keylock) on myself but it feels more like it's stretching the rear delt than the trap

    I could draw a diagram if that helps. But it would require *shudder* triangles. And no one wants the troll that would summon

    do you lift weights? if so what upper body exercises? because sometimes the antagonist/protagonist can be effected by training that muscle and not the other. what exercise and training do you do?

    I've been doing stronglifts 5x5 For nearly 2 months, substituted bent over rows for inverse rows. But I started noticing this when I wasn't doing any regular exercise.
