Technique Tuesday: serratus star

August 7, 2018

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.
