Technique Tuesday: serratus star

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4e47ZZ-Sap8

Equipment:

– Mini band (light resistance)

Purpose:

– Improve scapular stability

– Increase rotator cuff and shoulder strength

– Strengthen the serratus (an important muscle for shoulder blade alignment and stability) in a functional manner

Technique Tips:

– Keep forearms vertical — do not let the wrists dip inward

– Use the forearms to push the wall away (imagine you are pressing your midback into someone’s hand and maintain that throughout the entire exercise)

– Do not let your back or neck move while you are sliding the arm

When done correctly you will feel this working through the back of the shoulder.
