Do you sit for hours a day? Try this exercise combo to strengthen your sub scapulae to improve your posture and strengthen your upper back. This group of muscles is an area of opportunity for most individuals, no matter their activity level. So whether you want to stand a little straighter, hold a plank longer, or lift more weight, give this area its much deserved attention.
In each of the three positions shown, complete 20-30 pulses. The movements are small, but significant. Move continuously from one position to the next, rest up to a minute (less is better here) and repeat for 3 to 5 sets, depending on your level/ability.
I am using two orange/micro jump stretch bands, firmly secured to the door handle. You can secure it to anything at about waist level. These are easy to pack when you travel and to correct your posture after a long day in planes, trains, and automobiles.
