Shoulder Health II

#1. Scapular Retraction

  • left side, right side
  • 3x sets of 8-10x reps per arm
  • Relax for 1-2 min between sets to ensure quality reps!


  1. Using an elbow height table/bench and tea-towel, apply downward pressure through your elbow while you slide your arm back and forth in the horizontal plane.
  2. By keeping your chest upright, and back straight you should feel the exercise between your shoulder blades rather than your spine!

Don’t forget to stay safe, and stay tuned!
