Workout Guides - Scapular Retraction

1. Scapular Retraction
- Place band around both wrists.
- Stand with your feet hip-width apart, arms shoulder-width apart with palms facing each other. Your arms should form a 90 degree at your elbows. This is your starting position.
- Slowly move both elbows outwards until you form a W with your arms.
- Hold for 2 seconds and return to your starting position. That is 1 rep.
- Do 10 reps.
Tip: Keep your back straight and focus on using your elbow to lead the movement. Avoid using your forearms as your arms move outwards.
Primary muscles: Shoulders, Back
