Measure from the deltoid tuberosity to the acromiom and cut 2 strips of K TAPE.
Measure the tape slightly long to allow for the stretch on the muscle.
Prepare a Y STRIP by cutting one strip of tape in half lengthways, leaving a small tab at one end.
Stick this tab to the deltoid tuberosity with 0% stretch.
Bring your arm behind your back, placing the shoulder in horizontal adduction and medial rotation.
Lay the anterior tail of the Y STRIP along the anterior deltoid, finishing at the shoulder.
Move the arm to a full stretch across the front of your body, supporting with the other arm if needed.
Lay the posterior tail of the Y STRIP along the posterior deltoid, finishing at the shoulder and creating a teardrop shape.
Measure and cut another strip of tape fromSlump your shoulder and tilt your head towards the opposite shoulder.
Lay the base of the second strip down with 0% stretch (preferably on the skin for greater adhesion) at the bottom of the deltoid.
Stick the rest of the tape down with 0% stretch; up the arm and across the shoulder.
Wait 30 minutes before exercising to allow the tape time to set.
